Hey Maura -
Sorry for the delay in responding. Still up in the air about the Roundup this year. We are trying to take a family vacation down to VA, NC, & SC this year and it may overlap timing wise. I am hoping to at least make a day trip out for one of the days if not a couple. We'll see.
I never got a response from Mark. I know he does a LOT of AMAZING work though and get's paid well for it. I also know that you're trying to get to making a nice living from your carving so I thought if nothing else, you might want to meet him and talk. He's a VERY nice bloke and is always complaining he has more work than he can handle. So - I thought of you. I hope something works out, but if not you might want to take a field trip to his studio in Bethlehem PA and have a chat.
How's your teaching in NYC going? Hope you're well.
Hi There chuck, how the heck are you. sorry life is getting in the way of carving for ya, happens sometimes. Glad you found the jooltool review helpful. there's not much out there on it yet.
are you goin to the pocono roundup this year. I hope so. My problem is deciding what classes to take. It would be good to see ya
Did recieve an email from mark, I replied that I would love to work w/ him but don't know how the distance will affect things. Haven't heard anything from him. will give it a week or so and then try to reconnect with him. Thanks for mentioning me to him. Will let you know if anything comes of it
Long time, no talk. Nce to see you and your carvings here.
I zoomed your pictures all the way. Great camera work! Great carvings, too.
