I couldn't see Colleen's link, either. Gayle (or was it Bette?) sent
it to me in another post and said it came through in the text version,
but not in the other. Generally I don't have any problem with this, in
fact, this time was a first. I have no idea where the magic button

Hello My Freinds!
I think that you all might get a kick out of the visual pun here in my latest woodblock print.
Titled: "Basswood Tree"

If you don't want to ruin the surprise for exchange #32 then don't look at this!

Hello all you "alphabeters" .... my set of prints finally arrived
yesterday, and I have been flipping through them off and on ever
since. I want to thank all of you for your hard work in making this
exchange so interesting.

And many, many thanks to Sharri for your wonderful job as coordinator
... You have certainly se the bar pretty high for anyone else
considering taking on the job.

Cheers ..... Charles

Dear Baren Members,

I am now updating the list of participants in the
show on a daily basis and now I pretty much have and idea of which
works will be on show. Although I wanted to limit one print per artist,
I had to change plans since there were some outstanding works I had in
different exchanges by the same artist. I just hope you will not take
it personally if I chose one work or the other. The choices were
limited to a number of frames I could buy - the budget was tight - so I
tried to put together a variety of works - large and small, abstract
and figurative - because the object of the show is to instruct the
public on what can be done with printmaking, so I also chose works
based on technique
If there is something you have and you really want
to have it iin this show, please let me know off list - There are some
extra frames I have which I can use but they are all big ones (22 x 30
inches) or rarther small ones (7-8 inches x 10 or so) - I have nothing
in between left.
Here is the updated link once again
For those of you who
can't see the link or who still have problems with the link I posted,
please let me know off list and I will send directly to your mail a
list of participants and the rest via email

As regards the catalogue
I would like to print I still need to wait for the town council to see
if they approve this plan - in which case I would have it paid for by
them - I hope so - otherwise I need to split the costs among those who
want to be in the catalogue.
For now this is a stand by

for any other queries please email to colleenc @
