Recollections of Enid

by Elaine Galen

My relationship with Enid was one of mutual respect for each other as artists, Enid as a book artist and print maker; myself, as painter. I did not know Enid socially but we spoke long distance on the telephone from time to time.

I remember being together with Enid one afternoon in Cold Spring, NY. Enid and her husband Gene met me and husband, Ed Colker for one of those unforgettable summer days on the shores of the Hudson. The weather was perfection. We all enjoyed a meal and bottle of wine together and spoke about art, easily exchanging cogent ideas about the magic and struggles. We vowed to get together again. It was not to be.

But I will always remember that very special afternoon.
