a long morning visit. Might end up moving there in a few years.

Best to ya, Ernst


Don't wait to move. A few years turns into many and then the bones begin to creak. Move while you can still move. Matt

Well, somehow I got behind by four pages, lol. The multi-tasking chess player on page 2 is probably my favorite to date (now that I'm caught up) but all - as always - are fantastic learning aides and inspiration!

Ernst,

Thank you. Inspiring. Your finding such beauty in the ordinary things of a day prompt me to look more carefully. It's there waiting to be found. And captured. And contemplated.

Wonderful. Especially the chairs, which are so classically Ernst.

Have you done an exhibit of just chairs?

Both are lovely. That first one has knock-your-socks-off impact!
