Leslie's Watercolor Honored

Leslie Elder's beautiful watercolor painting, "Smoothing Out
The Wrinkles", has been selected to appear in the upcoming Watercolor Society of Oregon Fall Show at Resort at the Mountain  
in Welches, Oregon, taking place October 6-26.  We're so proud of Leslie's continuing accomplishments in the world of watercolor!

Commenting on the symbolism of this painting, Leslie cites a quote from Rebbetzin Tziporah Heller:
"The Eyshet Chayil poem, which extols the virtue of the ideal Jewish woman, contains the phrase 'Her husband is known at the gates.'  The fact that her husband is known at the gates is viewed as HER praise because the likelihood is that she is the cause and the inspiration."
