Maybe I should have named my blog Potpourri or Pastiche or simply a Savory Stew because I aim to throw a lot of different things into the pot, mostly about reading, writing and art, but many other things, too, because I’ve lived a long time and have a lot of interests. I also will include here thoughts of others I come upon who share my loves. Including those of you who care to share your thoughts and impressions.
Cover Design for my New Book

Being an artist and a writer has its advantages. For my new book I used one of my paintings as the cover illustration. The title of the book as I mentioned in an earlier blog is Echoes of Clara Avenue. The title of the painting which I painted long before I had the idea for the book is, The Old Neighborhood, Clara and Minerva. I grew up on a street called Clara Avenue in St. Louis and the painting from my memory is of the corner intersection of that street. It seemed appropriate to me to use it since my fictional Clara Avenue is an old neighborhood and obviously this one was too. I designed the book cover around that painting. Hopefully the book will be available on Kindle late this spring. Here’s the cover art:
