    Thanks for exposing Jean’s work. Where does she exhibit?

  2. joyce cheney says:

    Your prints are wonderful. You talked about slowing down. Producing 25 prints (and maybe you made even more than those shown here) doesn’t sound slowed down at all; it sounds like an amazing body of work for a month!

  3. Sean says:

    So many small jewels! When’s the gallery exhibit?

  4. Gene Daniels says:

    Very lovely work. An inspiration for all your viewers. Creating art in such hostile land requires a substantial effort to just begin. I enjoyed both parts of your presentation.
