As some of you may know, I recently had the good fortune to be given a wonderful commission and the opportunity to travel to New York for 2 weeks. There are some photos on my blog page but I would like to give a short presentation about the project at one of the art sessions early in the new year, so keep an eye open for updates. Josie's blog.
