If you want to wait that's fine, I thought along with images of your work and a statement,maybe you could also have some photos of Tuscarora and why you like it there etc..,Or if you have any ideas of what you'd like to present please let me know. I'm also trying to get a few friends from around here as well.. My analytics shows me I get a lot of international hits on my sites, and I've joined a lot of art blogs so who knows where the exposure will lead.I just find it fun and interesting.Btw I just saw a P.B.S. show on Nevada and desert rats and desert dwellers but they didn't mention the artists, I was surprised.

Hey Elaine, I've got this Ruralartgallery blog I'm trying to develop to showcase ariists who live in rural areas. Are you at all interested in having a post about you and your work in Tuscarora when you get back there? I thought I'd showcase tuscarora and Dennis Parks mugs I have and Planet Xpottery near Gerlach. Let me know if your interested in a single post on you and your work, part of a group post on Nevada, or none at all. http://ruralartgallery.blogspot.com/ I'm just doing this blog for fun and to try and get some buzz for rural artists. Also if you know of anyone else interested please let me know. Thanks, Lorena

Have a safe and wonderful trip to LA! We had a great time with you and everyone on Black Friday, Gary said it was the best day after Thanksgiving he has ever had. I sent off a few images of the hot spring, mountains, etc. to friends and most just grumbled back...
