There was a Perivale Gallery envelope in the stack of mail that built up while we were away earlier this month. A Shield For My Open Heart sold in July. Shiela told me that a thin black-wearing art teacher from Mississauga purchased it. Although very glad about the sale, I feel a need to remind myself about the work. The main part was printed with small hand carved rubber blocks. the stitched part is couched metal over book pages. Two books were used. One was letters home by Mary Cassatt when she went to Paris, the other was Joseph Albers theory of colour. Lots of stuff for an art teacher to love.
