Thank you for the positive comments! The Sunrise colors in this piece promise a new day! Aloha!

Dear Janet,
    I have moved to the Bay Area since the death of my husband. Happily, however, my Nicholson glass moved with me and has inspired the addition of more colors from it in my living room. I still love receiving your e-mails and the recent one just made me happy. It is obvious you and Rick have raised creative, intelligent and delightful young leaders of tomorrow. What a joy to see and enjoy. It is my hope to get up to Auburn for at least one of your events this year. I so enjoy visiting the studio and seeing all that's new.
    In the meantime I enjoy the glass every day, especially knowing its Hawai'ian influence, where my father was born. Life without art would be bleak indeed.


Marco is the friendliest dog on earth. New to us! Come say "hi"!

Thursday night April 12 is full of excitement if you love art! Preview the Outside the Box show at Placer Arts beginning at 4pm then wander down to Courthouse coffee to visit with the artists on this year's North Auburn Art Studios Tour Mothers Day weekend May 12 and 13. Artwalk is 6 to 9pm. Here is a close up of Precarious. I had fun playing with my photography again and included tree images on the box.

It is fun to occasionally have young groups out to watch the glass blowing. It is so visual that it usually makes quite an impact! We really appreciate the "Thanks" that follow!
