Newsletter August 2009
Greetings. It's hard to believe that its August already. My tomatoes in the greenhouse are turning red faster than we can eat them. And it seems that I spend half my time filling the hummingbird feeders. We have hundreds of Broadtail and Calliope hummers this year.

What is the meaning of the face paint in my American Indian paintings?
American Indians painted their faces for decorative purposes and for protection against the wind, sun, snow and insects. Designs of various kinds were used to designate membership in certain societies, to prepare for ceremonies, to mark achievement and to mourn the dead. When used for personal ornamentation there was no guide to the way the paint should be applied beyond the fancy of the wearer or for personal identification.
