Hola Tom Supensky. We have met, i have attended some of the CASE meetings in Augusta, as well as art openings. I have been very busy with family, my father mostly, but am firing soon, so in my mind i am getting back to the business i love. i was a member of the Aiken Guild, but when my father had a stroke i was traveling back and forth to NC, so i didn't have much time. With each passing day i "think" my life is about to get back to normal, instead of this being the new normal. not to mention, i know have a load of new imagery and ideas to work with. hope to meet up soon.

Because you are a potter with experience to share, and will be presenting on an interesting topic at NCECA, which piqued my interest. :)

Interesting work for sure--especially like Many a Good Egg.... The focus of my gallery is work by professional artists of central Illinois. Stop by if you ever get to Urbana!
