Martha Mayer Erlebacher, 1937–2013

Back in 1996, Martha chose one of my paintings, The Final Harvest, for the second place award at a competition in Michigan. This was the first award I ever received. I was very sad to hear of her death this past June. May she live on for a long time through her work, and may her presence be felt in those she touched throughout her life. Thank you, Martha.
