Now, finally after 10 years they seem to be Ansel Adams, of all people! Ansel's grandson who runs the gallery doesn't think so, and if they are they would not be worth the 200 million, as the experts have valued them say, so the legal battle has begun!
Adams is known for his striking black and white photography of Yosemite National Park (although his color photos are striking as well!).

My thoughts went back to two of my clients. They were both in their teens, and I think they might have gone to the same high school, and found out they had therapy from the same therapist. Some time after each of their therapy had ended, they ran into each other, and somehow the subject came on Ansel Adams. They both jinxed in saying, "Jeannette!" and laughed.
One of the things clients, or patients often remember is the therapy room. I had a large poster of one of Ansel Adams' photography in my room.
As a side comment, I prefer my clients call me by my name instead of "doctor" because my title creates distance, and I have to work longer and harder to bridge the gap!

Week after week, coming to the same room, it becomes a safe womb. How comforting to stay there, because it's safe. No one can hurt you there (if it's a good therapist). You're not quite "born" yet, but still in contact with the world.
The womb probably also comes to mind, because at the end August another little one will be added to our family.
This watercolor of my early period and is also posted on my art website http://www.Stgermainart.com . I did the same scene in oil.
By the way, my older paintings are on the above website, and some of my newer oneson Art Notes.
