*Making New Friends*
This past Sunday a group of lettering artists here in town held an exhibition/tribute for a fellow artist and friend of theirs who had recently passed away. I read about this exhibit through Lori Vliegen's blog. It just so happens that Lori is a fellow Etsian and one of my favorite artists. Lori creates beautiful handmade journals and cards. Another of their colleagues, Martha Lever was to be at the exhibit. Martha is another of my Etsy favorites. Martha creates beautiful collages and paintings featuring hand lettering. I saw on Lori's blog that this event was going to be held right up the street from where I live so I decided to attend. The artwork there was beautiful and inspiring! The highlight of the outing was for me to meet Lori and Martha in person finally. These ladies are SO talented and have such wonderful, caring spirits! I just cannot say enough about both of them. BTW - They are both fans of my designs as well and own a few of my pieces. To Lori and Martha, the pleasure was all mine. Thank you!
