If you watch the video/"mini art class," you'll see that I put together a slide presentation for this Book Club meeting.  My favorite slides are the ones looking at many of the artists who were inspirational to Irene.  Several of them were new-to-me.  In particular, I was struck by the paintings of Friedensreich Hundertwasser.  Here are a few of my faves:
