One of the most wonderful things about making art,  is that you get to give it away.  Since it is the season of giving,  I thought it an appropriate topic! I am peripherally involved in several charities,  and one of them is www.kageno.org started by my steadfast friend,  Frank Andolino.  Kageno, meaning a place of hope, transforms impoverished communities into places of opportunity and hope.  I always donate auction items, such as our glass keepsake boxes, for the yearly fundraiser, but this year I also donated the table numbers for the tables. Each table had a single orchid plant and woven runners. A lesson in simplicity.  Benjamin Gustafsson kindly took this photo for me.
