Drawing by Edie Hodge Pletzner

Since I have decided to feature some of the art work I have in my collection this is the second installment. This is a drawing of me by Edith Hodge Pletzner - it was done at an art B&B in Greenville NY. Edie, my friend Jane Betz and I used to do two art retreats (spring and fall) every year. I had long hair that I wore in braids and was sitting one afternoon at lunch looking at the woods and Edie did this quick sketch of me. The photo is not great as the sketch is framed under glass. Edie is a wonderful painter and portrait artist, I also have a pastel that she did in NY on one of our art get-a-ways. I treasure both of her sketches.
