    I believe the original pigments (mostly shades of ochre and also charcoal) are being used, but newer ones as well.

    They really feel immediate and fresh, and not like an ancient art form.

    I love art (and craft as well) though not particularly the "old Masters" type.

    I enjoy when innovative art is both beautiful and surprises me. Neat to see these.

    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    I think I saw her profiled on television. I'm happy she's keeping a precious tradition alive--she does meticulous work. Love the shallow rice baskets.
