|The NAMTA show at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh|
Everywhere I looked, there were luscious, colorful art supplies just waiting to be picked up, admired, and used.
All the well-known manufacturers of art materials were there, and it was fun getting to see and try out their new products.
I was itching to shop, but this was a show for art store owners, not consumers, so I had to be content to just put things on my mental wish list.
I was there as a representative of Stillman and Birn, whose sketchbooks I use and enjoy. Michael Kalman, co-owner of Stillman and Birn, had invited me to bring some of my sketchbooks to display and talk about at the S&B booth.

Everyone I met was so friendly, and the encouragement I received about my work was incredible! I've been invited to teach workshops all over the country, from Massachusetts to California. Pretty exciting!
I'll keep you posted on what develops. Isn't life great? You just never know what a day will bring.
