National Museum of Women in the Arts

I was on the 12 year plan for an undergrad degree in art. Took classes in four programs in Ohio and California. Went to grad school in Washington. I have seen more art produced by women in the past year reading #WOMENSART than in all of my years of formal art education.

A Tree of Many Leaves of a Brachychiton

In 2018, I planted Brachychiton seeds from pods I found in the Home Depot parking lot.

Currently I have one of the potted trees in the foyer. Today I noticed the tree has numerous leaf shapes.
