Rockin' the Emerald City!
Her serious painting work was not Oz related. But almost every year in the 1970s and '80s Irene would paint miniature scenes of the Emerald City on small stones - usually only a couple inches across. Sometimes she donated them to the Oz Club's auctions. Sometimes she made them as gifts for friends.
One year she gave one to me - an especially tiny and detailed one. If you click on the image it will enlarge and you can see how very intricate the little painting is. I especially like the full moon behind one of the towers.
I realize this is a very small blog post today. However, it is also a very small rock.
