The 2015 Anthology is here. Writings by the group that meets to critique, encourage and share are now in print form.

When I'm not painting, I'm writing. That's how it has always been. Yes, writing came after teaching, and after kids. Painting has always been my 'thing', but I like to paint with words, also.

The Writers of the Purple Page include Carol McDermott, Lily 0lson, Verena McKenney, Maryellen Miller, Jean Bower and Barbara Torke, this year. It was a difficult year for many members and the sweetness and sorrow show in much of the writing. 

I always enjoy putting the book together. I use and BookWright. It's easy to use, and they are quick and of fine quality. 

This year I used my own watercolor paintings of flowers to illustrate the book.Not all of them are on my website at this time,  but I will share a few of those.

If you are interested in buying the 2015 Anthology it is available on Enjoy the fine writing of my friends and also a few of my poems and art writings. POPPIES_4648_edited-1POPPIES
