CHAIR - for Oregon Partnership

Margo Jacobsen organized a group of artists to create CHAIRS for the 2010 Oregon Partnership benefit. I used an India ink pen and clear laquer to create mine.

Ukrainian RUSHNIK

These decorative Ukrainian hand towels (called rushniky [plural] ) are used in a ceremonial manner, often for weddings or funerals. The red symbolizes life, the sun, fertility and health. 1 Additionally, they often have regional stitching and use floral or animal motifs. If I were to happen upon an outdoor market full of hanging rushniky, I think I'd be in proverbial Heaven. Image source:
