One of my favorite artists making work right now is the very talented Iviva Olenick. I have admired and appreciated her work since I first saw it during a summer residency a few years back. I always get a thrill of checking out her blog and seeing what she's making. Her work resonates with me. It speaks to me, sticks to my ribs, and makes my heart ache sweetly. I find I carry the work around with me long after the initial moment of seeing it.
That's why, when I saw THIS POST, I beamed with pride. She translated a few lines from an email I wrote to her into a true work of art. I am utterly flattered by this gesture.

A great example of how two artists together can create something amazing. Such a powerful piece!
