~ ~ I don't know if I'd have the energy to take all my stuff & set up more than our 2 sales/year. Perhaps once my son isn't living with us any more/has his life more together - I expect I'll have more energy. Also DH wants to retire in about 2 years. Mind you, we'll be moving to the country, so I'd have to see about a kiln & our finances will be reduced, so not sure if the hydro would be affordable for that, but at that time, I'll see what I think.

~ ~ Thanks. I LOVE painting the butterflies & dragonflies. I take AGES doing it, with very small brushes. My brooches aren't on an album yet, but I LOVE painting very very small scenes on some of them. Like river's edge with bullrushes, flowers, birds in sky, etc. Some of my brushes have only about 12 hairs in them - really fine.

~ ~ That's an idea. The light wouldn't shine through the pottery though, but maybe I could make a candle holder with a nice wide, deep bottom part, for safety, & the light would be shining against the back of the stand! Thx for 'sparking' an idea!!!! I like coming up with practical items for Raku. You can't use it for food, etc - it's not food-safe. Also, can't use Raku vases for water! Dried flowers only. I made some nice business card holders once. Most have sold. My therapist bought one!

> Kath, my best friend's also an artist, and she's had her work in all kinds of stores...artsy, mainstream, and even Neiman's, but she prefers to sell at art fairs as she gets to keep most of the money.

~ ~ too bad her family is like that! Jeez. they should be proud of her doing what she loves!

> Please do keep posting your beautiful work, Kath. It's called art therapy - for me, much more therapeutic than talk therapy.
> So, thank you.

~ ~ - thanks for the encouragement & I love that it is of value to you!!!

Maybe one day you'll be a happy turkey!!
