When the Orientalist painters first travelled from Europe to the Middle East in the 19th century, their immediate discovery was the brightness and intensity of ...the light in the region. Throughout the 20th century and even now, the importance of the perfect light is still central to many Middle Eastern artists...

The grey thing in right upper corner of the table is my Perkins Brailler from student days at Blind School in Pacific Grove, California. Did you know that all food and other products sold in France have Braille on their labels? France is so friendly to visually impaired folks.
Hans had a gallery next door to mine in Carmel. He absolutely loved that I would paint in the window at sunrise. He taught me many things but the most importa...nt was to use a heavy hand lotion to remove paint from your hands. Rub it on, rub it off. On my birthday one year he showed up with a birthday cake and a beautiful framed painting which he inscribed "to Chloe on her birthday, all my love Hans". I still cry every time I look at it. I am thinking of him today; he is nudging me to forget about the doctors and PAINT.
When I lived in Ireland I fell in love with the lush countryside where often I would see cows and sheep sharing the road with automobiles and bicycles. I went to paint the International Horse Show in Dublin and then lived in County Meath to complete fifty watercolor paintings for a solo exhibition at a gallery in Georgia, USA.
This tiny country village is a dream destination for artists and flower lovers—featuring the picturesque former home of Claude Monet and abundant gardens to wander through.
"Radishes for Valya" When I had a one woman show in Sofia Bulgaria I was invited to the country farmhouse of the gallery owner for the weekend. Georgi's wife ...Valya had a lovely garden with beautiful radishes.
The following year, while having a show in Hanapepe Hawaii I was preparing art for another show in Bulgaria and at the local Hawaiian market I found these beautiful radishes. I rubbed them with a hand made concoction of pastel, ink and Elmer's glue that was applied to leaves and pressed onto watercolor paper. The actual radishes were applied the same way. I love the way this turned out; washed the paint off and added the radishes to my dinner salad. The outline of the radishes were impressed with a blind tool to raise the edges (for fingertips to touch) and the title "Valya"s Radishes" was embossed in Braille. This was prior to my corneal transplant and I had very little eyesight but I always see with my heart
