    The ‘Impressionist Horse’ has to be one of my favorites. Its good to see your work again. Over the years I had lost the card you gave me with your website on it, so it took some looking to find you again. I wanted you to know that you were the most influential teacher I have ever had. Never loose your light, because without it, many would fall to darkness.

    Cheyenne, it’s fabulous, hearing from you again, thank you for finding me! I hope you’re pursuing your art–you were always so engrossed in the process. To me, it offers the richest internal rewards, just getting lost in the process of making something from the imagination. I hope all is well for you these days. I’m still at Martin, doing my thing. Thanks so much for the encouragement.
