sorry for the spam to the entire list. I'll be in Portland, OR for a few

some recommendations for galleries/studios/workshops that I should visit. Of
course, if there are bareners living in Portland, I'd be delighted to meet

Thank you,

A brisk and welcome walk (accompanied by ominous thunder) to Chipotle and an equally welcome burrito set me up for my presentation before the assembled engravers and guests. I spoke about my development as an engraver, my influences and the way that I work, emphasising my belief in the importance of sketchbook work. The audience listened to me kindly and patiently. I enjoyed a most pleasant afternoon meeting people.

In the evening, we ate pizza and enjoyed the first of two sessions during which members made their own presentations of work.

All in all, a most . . .
