This is one of my favorite drawings Betty did back in the 70's.  I scanned a slide of Leda and had it blown up and mounted on plexi glass.  It hangs in my home office.  During the day my eyes drift to Leda and I smile.

You can buy a print if you love it as much as I do.

Oh My God! this is stunning, gorgeous! Leda is like a goddess! it's as if she speaks the wisdom of beauty! Betty I know your an artist but this goes beyond artistic, what an amazing piece of art, I think a gallery should want to share your art!... lucky you Carlin!

As Howard the Duck said, landing on earth: Take me to your Leda!

What wonderful segway to permit me to introduce readers to the amazing talents of Garfunkel and Oates, especially given the recent landmark US Supreme Court decision regarding marriage equality. Enjoy their music video, Sex With Ducks, here.
