Two nude figures join hands in artist Libby Ramage's arresting primitive piece. The elderly couple braces themselves going into an uncertain future. "The first layer of this piece is a map of New Zealand, selected for its Bay of Plenty which appears on the middle right side," says Libby. Collaged handmade paper, feathers, and fabric constitute the image of the large bird, poetically placed to evoke flight and nesting.

This spring has been full of good surprises. My entry in the Mercer County exhibit was purchased by the Mercer County Cultural Comission and my submission to the Trenton Museum's Ellarslie Open won best in show for drawing!

Dear Nancy, I don't think you got my reply from my ipad? Anyway, thank you for writing and your kind words. I am so happy you like my art. I have been using my younger son's 7th grad Algebra homework for several years,(he's 24 now!). Memories of his struggles with homework are still vivid. By all means send me an image of your daughter's note. Enjoy! libby style="color: #000000;"4/23/2014 | 3:07 PM

Dear Libby -- This quirky and clever dog is adorable! I and everyone who sees it loves it! Thank you so much. I have an early note from my daughter on notebook paper which I have been wondering how to display. Maybe I could send you a pic of it and you could do some other creation on commission? Hope so! All the best, Nancy
