Anna Shakeeva was named one of the superb DC area artists by The Washington Post.

Anna is well-known not just in the US but around the world as well. She was raised in Russia and was mostly influenced by the Russian art culture. Anna learned from the best while developing her own original style. Over the past twelve years Anna has been working with oil-based paint, creating a unique layering effect in her monotype prints. She also works in dry-point. Anna'a prints are rich in details so fine that they appear almost as small pieces of jewelry.

There was a position open for an accountant at this one large firm. They got the applicants down to 3 people.

The president was going to interview each one separately. He asked the first applicant in.
"I'm going to ask you just one question," says the president, "What's 2+2?"
Applicant #1 promptly answers "Four."
"Thank you, we will get back to you," replied the president.
The second applicant comes in, same question "What's 2+2?"
Applicant #2 thinks this must be a trick question, thinks a little bit and says "Five."
The president replies, "Well, that's obviously wrong, don't call us, we'll call you."
The third applicant comes in, same question "What's 2+2?"
The third applicant looks around as if he's looking for someone else in the room and replies, "What would you like it to be?"
The president exclaims, "YOU'RE MY MAN!"
