Impatiens in our Garden & newly matted Chief Menominee prints

11:00 P M

Another beautiful day. The recent wonderful rains have made our impatiens plants the nicest we've ever had, and we also have VERY healthy weeds. I must photograph them (the impatiens) - and try to capture them in a small watercolor. Red and white blossoms- might be nice with a small U S flag in their midst.

Today I helped put together several Chief Menominee prints with Ward's poem. Ward put an oak frame on one and is making a nice rustic gray frame for the other one. These have been constant sellers and a gentle reminder of the culture of the American Indian. What a great example they were - as they tried to be kind to their (now "our") environment. Amazing that it was less than 200 years ago when their culture was very dominant in our country.

I've added the Chief Menominee image and Ward's verse to this blog. The Chief and Ward's poem are placed side by side, each in its own opening in one mat. Print includes a certificate of authenticity signed by both Esther and Ward, and a copy of the history behind this print.
