A is for ART and ARTISTS

I  LOVE ART ! Art in every form is Amazing to me. Art like beauty is subjective but I am pretty sure you will all agree that my choice is a good one.
At 14 years old as a freshman in a small all girl high school in the Washington D.C. suburbs I met Lisa. Her art was extraordinary, she stood out and fearlessly created. She never copied, she created. 
In my life I have had the good fortune to interact with many wonderful artists but somehow  the feeling of that first image that inspires and fills you and makes you realize that you are witnessing something remarkable, that feeling at 14 admiring LIS ZADRAVEC's work  was magical.
A is for ART and I share a few pieces by a friend of my youth a great ARTIST and her links for your pleasure.
