We lost electricity for less than 12 hours but others in my area are still without power. This storm made me think of all of our neighbors throughout the East coast and Mid Atantic states.

Eco-dyed paper at the Morgan

Eco-dyed paper by India Flint while in Cleveland, Ohio, USA , 10/15/12

Eco-dyed paper by India Flint created in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, 10/15/12
Twinkle lights were hanging above us in the studio,
while class participants where eager to listen to the instructions for their first project with India Flint at the Morgan Conservatory in Cleveland. 

Above is work-in-process by George Mauersberger. 
I am pleased as punch to tell you that India gave this beautiful example of her work to my husband, George Mauersberger in appreciation for the off-cuts of a thick watercolor paper he gave her for the eco-dye for paper class at the Morgan.
