Hubcap Art

My mother asked me to post this photo essay of her hubcap art. I'm proud and glad to share these photos of mom's creative output!


All hubcap art depicted herein is original artwork by Elaine Radoff Barkin. (Mom took the photos too, and adds: "Thanks to Wanda Bryant, who formatted the photos with InDesign software.")
