In a review of the show, Jane Holahan wrote in LNP's Entertainment section: "Tana Reiff’s 'Brilliant Canopy' is a lovely portrait of a horizon of a yellowish sky, blue fading away and the darkness of the ground settled between a row of leafless trees."

Introducing new Water and Reflections collection
**********************************************
Water fascinates me to no end, and I know I'm not alone in that sentiment. So I put together a new collection of my favorite water images. They are enhanced by reflections of the trees above a river or a sunset spilling across a surf. I recently printed some of these photographs on mounted metallic paper for my own bathrooms. You can choose to print on different types of high-quality paper, canvas, metal, or acrylic - in pairs, groups, or singly at whatever size you want. They would also make amazing shower curtains, throw pillows, and other home decor items. Take a look for yourself: Shop Photo Prints at left or at www.tanareiff.com and then select the Water and Reflections collection.

I'm working on the final proofing of "Neighbors" - #12 in the Hopes and Dreams series of immigrant stories at an easy reading level. Publisher is shooting for March release at TESOL in Atlanta.

"Neighbors" is the story of Salvadoran refugees, spanning 38 years. Some rough stuff here, also heartwarming and hopeful. Research and writing was challenging for me ... ok, it was really hard. But it's a story worth telling.
