Making some note cards from the artwork of Dorothy Bury Shaw, of Downers Grove, IL. Her work is always so masterfully detailed, springing forth from such spiritually poignant inspiration. Her work is of archival inks on paper. These pieces are entitled "Gemstones" & "A Place to Rest". The heart piece is a square card, the figure is a 5 x 7 bleed.

We first digitally captured this artwork in 2008. The artist, Sharlene Dufrene (Raceland, LA), is having prints made to give as part of a souvenir / memento package that is being handed out to members of a graduating class for an upcoming a reunion. The nostalgia in the work will be hugely appreciated by the recipients.
