Esta pintura ha sido aceptada como "Meritoria" en la competicion Richeson 75 Internacional de Bodegon y Abstracto 2011.

I've just finished reading Drawing and Coloring for your life, by Julia Nichols and Avis Garrett, PhD, with illustrations by Elizabeth "Grandma" Layton. The writing is based on Elizabeth Layton's drawings and beliefs. One of these was that contour drawing is "the magic prescription to health". She had never drawn in her life, and started drawing at age 67! She represented feelings like fear, hope, guilt, and learning to like ourselves in her simple, beautiful line drawings.
Acabo de terminar de leer Dibujar y Colorear para salvar tu vida, basado en dibujos y principios de Elizabeth Layton. Ella creia que dibujar con simples lineas era la "prescripcion magica para la salud". Nunca habia dibujado en su vida, y comenzo a hacerlo a los 67 anos! Representaba sentimientos de miedo, esperanza, culpa, y aprender a gustarse a uno mismo, en sus dibujos de contorno simples.
