Mary Azarian

This month's featured artist is Mary Azarian.  Her beautiful wood-cuts beautifully capture the New England landscape.  I'm looking forward to creating our own Christmas gift tags!

Please take some time to study the following image before class.  Can you describe the relationship between the people in this image?
