The above Kathleen Weich postcard is a 2004 Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition find. This series of paintings was inspired by the Gee's Bend quilts, which at the time were taking the art world by storm. Oh how I wish I could have afforded one of these paintings, but my hubby and I were only into year three of an interminable house renovation. That's what we get for buying the worst house in a nice neighbourhood. Naturally, Weich has moved onto other painting subjects, but I still yearn for one of these beauties.
