Re-discovering Jody's Watercolors

Jody Towery, missionary to Taiwan, seated on the front row of this 1960 charter members of the Pingtung Baptist Church, later lived in Hong Kong and was a colleague on the China mainland (1956-1990) learned from masters of watercolor in all three places. Now that she can no longer paint it is time to show her early works. She did book covers of bamboo as well as scrolls and framed pieces of birds, mountains in the old Chinese style, and even some sketches of the Hong Kong harbor, when it was not as crowded as it is in the 21st century.

Her painting of this "bird in a quandary" has a question about something, like saying, "You talkin' to me?" or "Who said that?"

More to come as time allows the scanning of her work.
