Sharri, I'm so glad you put up a web site! I've never seen all your
work together and there are many of your pieces I've never seen
before at all. I LOVE your big moku hanga works that you've put under
the heading "found wood." Did you hand print them, or do them on a
press? Your studio looks really nice (picture in the bio section) -
sorry I missed the opportunity to see it in person at the last Summit.

Just one small suggestion on the web site. It might be good to have
the link to your Etsy store open in a new window, so the window to
your main web site remains open behind it. That way if somebody gets
wandering around in Etsy, they won't forget how they got there (i.e.
forget YOU).

Sue I think you are right about one thing, climate and the affects it has on
our products. Living at the coast where the temps rarely climb above 75
(only a few days in mid summer does it really get hot) and where we have a
rainy climate probably makes a huge difference in how my brushes dry. I do
not soak them, just swish them well in the bottom of the sink and brush soap
into the bristles enough to get the pigment out.
How nice of McClains to replace the brushes that cracked. It speaks well
for them and the type of company they run. A good place to do business I
would say. It does not settle well when you get a bad product and let a
company know and they do nothing. Art supplies are costly, especially to
the artist as few of us make big bucks with our work.
That makes this discussion very important, taking good care of supplies and
climate is one big factor, from mold to drying out.

When I visited the Rodin museum the thing that blew me away was how
influenced he was by his student and mistress, Camille. It seemed
some of his greatest ideas came from her.

His wonderful garden still resides in my mind and every year I try to
get my husband to build something like that here. So far this man
has amazing resistance.

Cheers ~

Does anyone know what bristol or tag board is called in Japan? And possibly
where one might purchase some?
A friend that is staying there needs some and is not sure how to go about
finding it.

For those looking for an excuse to visit Victoria, B.C. ... The Art
Gallery of Greater Victoria currently has a show of Rodin sculptures,
etchings, and dry points. Over 60 sculptures are on view. Check it out at:

Sorry ... not much wood block print content here, but Rodin was being
discussed ...

Cheers ..... Charles
