with that color scanner you may be able to find a good printer and print
cards of some of her work.  I got a very bad catalog of cards that have been
done by an artist I bought from in the past (about 5 years ago at an art
fair).  Am I going to order cards?  you bet.  I am ordering the same as my
picture a water color and pencil drawing of gladiola's.

Bad catalog means very bad copy of hand written pages.  I remember the
artist and it is worth the cost to have them shipped from Rhode Island.
