Hi guys,

I've never understood the complaint of too many emails, nor have I ever
understood the restriction of one post per day, tho I try to comply. None

check it every day, but I don't have to, and they are there when I want to
see them. Or I can delete them.

No muss, no fuss. ;-]

Four days ago I came home from my last out-of-town workshop of the summer, a grand experience at Rocky Mountain National Park with fabulous, enthusiastic students. (Thanks, everyone!)

It took me until yesterday to come to terms with the fact that I am NOT immediately racing back out the door again. My suitcase is NOT open on the bed. The laundry has NOT been done. I am NOT carting boxes of stuff in to or out of the car.


It's not like I don't still have plenty to do. There are contract projects still in progress, a private workshop to prep for, and lots of planning to do for exhibitions and future projects. And, yes. I am twitchy to get back into a studio groove.

carving evidence.

I had my first taste of getting back to printing this weekend. Birds in Art is coming up soon at the Woodson Art Museum and I promised I'd send a little piece for their Project Postcard fundraiser. Which . . .
