40" x 30" - mixed media on paper
I had only just arrived in Los Angeles to start a new life after my young husband died in Chicago. I was in a new apartment, which just received its last piece of furniture to complete its decor. Everything was perfect. Then, early the next morning, around 4:00 A.M. I was tossed out of my bed ith a giant lurch and I thought the world had come to an end. The building shook and swayed and creaked and groaned. I lay on the floor listening to things crashing down from the walls and cabinets. Had I died and gone to Hell? No, I just experienced my first earthquake in Los Angeles. I can hardly wait for another.
