Extraordinary Gifts: Remarkable Women of the Delaware Valley

My tribute painting to Shirley Scott is included in the book Extraordinary Gifts: Remarkable Women of the Delaware Valley which celebrates 20 remarkable women with Philadelphia connections.

I was honored to see that it is also featured on the title page.

This painting still exists but it hangs in the basement stairwell so nobody ever sees it. I find this view pleasing.
