People I’ve meet along the way

One of the great things about doing shows is the people you get to meet. Posting my work on various art sites is all well ‘n good and you make a lot of “virtual” friends but when you finally get a chance to meet someone that you’ve only had contact with on the net its kinda kool. I don’t get the whole texting thing..maybe cuz Im an old schooler but I prefer to hear a voice…. interact human to human.  Anyway….got a bit sidetracked. I have met some very interesting people doing my art thing that I would have otherwise not met. Heres a few pix showing just that. Many of you may not know them but they are well known and respected in the circles Im in and pretty kool to me non-the-less.

    Hi Terry, how has it been going on the left coast? It hasn’t been bad here in the midwest. Give me a text or call sometime when you have a chance! Have great holiday season! Bob
