  1. I really must see this while the show is still up. Your postcards so intrigued me that I dreamed about them last night. Powerful stuff! Thanks for intriguing and inspiring me.

  2. That's curious, eliciting a dream. Wow, thanks for your response Karen! Your taking up a daily drawing practice is inspiring. The show is varied and exuberant, worth seeing if you're in town.
