This is my original oil painting of Lake Tahoe on the northern California/Nevada border. This delightful bay is "Emerald Bay." Here I brought back a Timber Wolf which is looking over the lake and sees wolf images in the clouds! This theme is similar to my "27 Bears" here in my Portfolio and on my Official Website:

I enjoyed the seloctien of poetry and voices in this issue. Kristy Bowen's what monster left me with a eerie and memorable feeling. The lines I forgot about the war while rearranging the plates.We wanted to understand what science was, that big bluehope bursting through our door. were particularly striking. They captured the spirit of curiosity and a never-reachable inclusiveness of mundane knowledge with mindful philosophy. The feeling I was left with was familiar. The poem seemed to vocalize a frustration and almost a guilt I feel every day. I will remember it as one of my favorites. Kate Schapira's poems were equally as remarkable. The last line in CAUTION offered a beautiful picture and was a perfect summation for the poem. What a treat! Thank you very much.Charlotte Beard
