Traffic - India!

In my childhood memory I recall New Delhi traffic with a smile...Lounging cows, ambling elephants, bicycles, cars, scooters, auto rickshaws & people together composed a menagerie of comical proportions! These days it can still be just as colourful driving on those same streets. I tried to capture all those amusing little details in this painting.

This painting is 30" x 30" & is available SOLD.

The Family Cookbook

My husband & I love to cook! We buy mostly organic produce from these amazing Buddhist farmers here in Beijing, & the rest we get from the local fresh market, which is always an adventure. Naturally we experiment & collect recipes, which we will maybe one day pass down to our future kids, with this design as the cover. It is a re-do of a 1960' French "how-to" book (see the brilliant original here).
