Every single artist I know who frequently has exhibited in Disney's Festival of the Masters in the past got juried out this year. Either my acquaintances are sudden losers or this was just a statistical aberration or the jurying was done by design to weed out past participants. Are we crazed consipiracy theorists or could there be anything to this? Just wondering. There was a rather large buzz going on about this over the weekend, at least among the rejectees.

Great selection of wood. That should protect your ankle for the next thousand years. Hopefully it won't take that long.

Well, shows over for 2010. Off to Europe in a few days (looking for older trees - or anything else). See you Jan 1.

And what's this "Sir" thing?.
