Allow me to introduce a good, no, a very good friend of mine. Her name is Lana.
Lana Elmore Cochrun is the full name. And she is an artist.
I have known her for more decades than either of us would want to admit. She spent the bulk of her life as an art teacher in Indiana, trying to inspire the youth of her area to indulge in their gifts and their talents.
Now, she lives in California, on the Central Coast, where she has had the opportunity to indulge herself, her talent, her gifts. She has had great success and I believe she has a great future.
You can see her most recent show at the Windward Gallery here. If you are in her area (Cambria) I would suggest you buy her work now. It can only get better and more dear.
Congratulations, dear friend.
