My Favorite Web Links
These pages include righteous causes, powerful stories, great resources, and many other tasteful and tasty delights.

Watercolor Society of North Carolina
I enjoy being a member of the WSNC and serving on the Board of Directors. This statewide organization is a great resource for watercolor painters. The WSNC website includes links to members, images from the annual WSNC exhibition, links to art supply vendors, and information about arts organizations.

SEEDS Community Garden
I wish I had more time to paint in this lovely garden spot. Amid fruit trees, fragrant herbs, and song birds, the folks at the SEEDS Community Garden are busy nursing seedlings and building community. The garden is also the home of DIG, a youth driven farmer's market business. You can purchase the harvest of these energetic young folks every Saturday at the Durham Farmer's Market.

Hidden Kitchens
These delectable programs, produced by The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva) and Jay Allison for National Public Radio, explore how communities come together through food. They were originally broadcast October through December 2004.
My favorite episode is The Club from Nowhere: Cooking for Civil Rights.

The Splendid Table
Most Sundays you will find me dabbling at my watercolors while listening to the sage advice and mouth-watering stories of Lynne Rosesetto Kasper, goddess of life's appetites and hostess of the radio program The Splendid Table.

The Artist's Palate
This web site for The Artist's Palate, a cookbook that features recipes from renown artists, is truly a work of art. I just cannot resist a site that offers Mark Rothko's apple pie recipe.

Your Artlinks: Thousand of Art Resources
I was searching for web directories where I might list my web site. The folks at Artlinks say we'll show yours if you'll show ours, fair enough. Plus, they were my catalyst for creating this lovely links page.
