Annie Dillard, having announced her retirement from writing, now paints and draws. That’s her  “Long Cloud,” above; to the right, her self portrait.

Her web site offers fine prints at $350; there’s a limit of ten to be sold of each. Proceeds go to Partners in Health, which provides medical services for the poor in developing countries. I stumbled across her artwork and have no idea whether these pieces are still available, but she lists a dealer to contact.

I’m unfit to evaluate visual art. But I know what I like, and I like Dillard’s images. A lot. And she’s priced them modestly.

    I’m not an expert either, but we all know what we like, right? “Long Cloud” is gorgeous. One of my favorite books is “For the Time Being” and I had no idea that the author was now painting. Thanks for the link to Dillard’s website and a sneak peek at her artwork.
