In Memoriam for Yvonne Palka,
Ming Chiao Member

John Palka writes:

“The book presents a selection of paintings by my beloved late wife, Yvonne Palka, interwoven with my photographs and with a focus on nature. It is an expression of our love of beauty and art, of our devotion to nature, of our spiritual search, and of our shared journey of sixty years. . .

“I have sought in these pages to bring together those of Yvonne’s paintings that most express her warm, joyous, loving, and uplifting spirit. I complement these images with photographs that resonate with the paintings in one way or another—sometimes in form, sometimes in color, and always in spirit.
