Editor's Note

I have had the good fortune of knowing Meryl Spiegel for many years.  We met during my BNB days when she was referred to me as a resource for a specific type of photography I was searching for.  I also knew her as a writer.  Over the years, I have been impressed with Meryl’s talent and creativity, and the honesty of her work.  When Meryl began to sketch, paint, work with pastels, she truly overlaid one talent on top of another. The layers were intriguing. I reached out to Meryl recently because I thought that the Hummingbird audience would appreciate her work, and value her process.  They say that timing is everything, and in this case it was, because Meryl was thinking about not only “showing” her work, but writing about it too.  In our new series, An Evolving Life, Meryl will share the stages, challenges, and meaning of her art, and the journey that coincides with the pieces she highlights.  Sandra Novick
