Re: The Rainbow Factory

This has got to be one of the better ones in the series for me. You're making it harder and harder to pick just one that stands out above the rest. But don't let that deter you. :-D

Re: A pM Retreat? Share Your Thoughts

Like you Chuck, I might make it into a road trip as well.

I say we also think about setting (maybe) half day "sessions" where each of use leads a "workshop" in our strong areas. I.e. Textures with Minnie, I can do Lightroom, etc. Intersperse time for group outings and communal activities... :-D

Re: My day job

I'm curious if you don't mind, were you trained as an artist or is it something you've always known, and do you use references to draw things, like the tigers, or do you see it all in your mind? I'm always amazed by this! S- Tattoo art has a long tradition that has carried through the ages. Simple ...

[...] it must be kind of neat to see your work walking about.
Thanks for the kind comments. I definitely get a kick out of seeing my work. Specially pieces that I haven't seen in a while. The viking on the arm, for example, is one I never really see around any more.
