Joaquin Farias is doing  pioneering work in the field of neurology and brain plasticity. Like Agatha Christie's famous Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, Joaquin Farias is solving  medical mysteries that confound the medical establishment.This was a gift of appreciation and humor for Joaquin after my sessions with him.

I was asked to do a poster for a family reunion with the theme "Tell the next generation" taken from Psalms in the Bible. I wove together photos to tell the story of the immigration and pioneer pastoral service of the some of the first Norwegian ancestors who came to Wisconsin in 1851.  A photo of the original communion cup brought from Norway became the center focus, along with the requested excerpt from Psalms.

My artist friend Anita, whose Hebrew name Hannah Yitzchaka means"Comfort and Laughter,"  works at a home for elders. I wanted to bring out the joy in this photo of Anita singing with an inter-generational group of her elders and young children.  I replaced the rather drab background with a flower display and a Valentine's Day angel, added a couple of energy swirls and a "torn stamp" frame.
