My friend Donna is an extraordinary artist. Her large paintings take your breath away because of two elements; one is the visual flow of the colors and design, the other is the depiction of common experiences that grab you and pull you in. The hint of colored tiles by the pool, the refreshing coolness of the water color. Now Donna is closing the pinnacle chapter of her life as an artist--her studio gallery. "Final Showing" the words read. I don't know her feelings about it. I know I'm sad about this end. I hope recognition happens in her lifetime.
