my left hand got into an argument with the table saw a few weeks ago. As my friend and co-worker Dave said, "and the saw always wins." And it did. I did not loose any fingers, but the damage has been done and it has certainly slowed me down. A full recovery is expected, it is just going to be a while. No need to go into details though.

Anyway, I was working on a new piece to be entered into a juried show in St.Louis, as you have figured it out, it did not get finished. I was able to enter another piece for the show and should know whether or not I am in by the middle of April.

As for the unfinished piece, I will have it ready by this weekend. It along with three other pieces of mine will be on display in a group exhibit at the West Central Illinois Arts Center in Macomb Illinois. The theme for the show is art that incorporates recycled/reclaimed materials. This show will coincide with Western Illinois University's Environmental Summit. The opening reception will be Wednesday, April 6 from 6-8 pm.

Would love to see you there.
