Send Message: To this poster

Karma, not to worry, I do art all over. At times life does get in the
way, like when my studio was full of all the things from the kitchen,
stove, refrigerator and my dining room furniture. Now my kitchen is
nearly complete, my studio is back to normal and I am not there I am
in Baja Sur , Mexico. We were three weeks on the road, have been
settling in our condo for one more week. Next week I will make it a
priority to get back to making art. I have carved outside on my
picnic table, I have painted outside at my picnic table and I have
done half sheet watercolors sitting in the Baja sun getting eaten
alive buy mosquitoes. Making art does not require a fancy studio, it
does require the desire to create. I have supplies and I carry two
full bags of art materials with me now when we drive the Baja because
down here you can't get good ink, good wood or good carving tools. I
do think tools make a difference but art is art and if you create you
make due and the work gets done regardless.

Thanks for the great John Scott sight.

Thank you, Dave, for taking the time to so thoroughly answer my
questions. You were very helpful, as always.

I am confident my experience with these tools will be as good as you say!

Now, I'll have to take good care of these fine tools... and get back to
