|EMAIL TO THE EDITOR
This is just some email that I get from time to time from readers. A little positive energy is always nice.
From Deanna Chafin on Facebook:
I think what you've done for us over the years has been great. Can't tell you how many times I've heard from people who said they've never gone to an art gallery because they just assumed they could never afford the work. Opening their minds to supporting those of us who offer affordable pieces has helped immensely. Deanna Chafin http://www.deannachafin.com/
Thanks for the invitation to be a part of your network. You certainly
have donated a lot of time to bringing awareness of the unique quality
of the arts and their impact on all people.
Thank you for your advise. I had a look on your website and notice that you are helping upcoming artist. We need people like you believing in artist.
I was checking out your site and found it down to earth and informative. Welcome aboard. Perhaps you can give me a few suggestions on how an artistic temperment can thrive in this present century...
Cheers, Ina Puchala
Utterly delighted Michael and I enjoy your website. Will continue to follow you with interest.
Thank you, Michael, for asking me to join your network. I am impressed with all that you have been able to accomplish for the art community - artists and collectors, writers and publishers, and everyone in between. Congrats on your much earned success.
If you have an opportunity, I would appreciate your honest comments on my work http://www.cyndycarstens.com
Wishing you all the best,
Hi Michael, Thanks for adding me to your network. I listened to the interview you did, about your book, and I agree strongly. I like your approach not having to know everything about the artwork to enjoy it, as with a meal. Same is with artists. Trying to please collectors/byers in the need to sell might get us out of our own track - and that is the only way forwards, to follow our own track: turning inside, finding the messages there. Every age has its own inside voice, and over the years we became "a whole choir", if we trust the voices from inside, either being a collector or an artist.. Just wanted to say hello, wishing you the best with this good work! Elly Prestegaard
If you are ever on the central coast of California, come visit me at the Seaside Gallery in Pismo Beach. It's a nice little gallery with wonderful, hardworking owners trying to promote quaility art work in this quaint beach town. Karen Peterson
Hi Michael! Really nice to meet you! Your website is very interesting, and you are very interesting person! I like yours "My paintings are like old friends. They're always there. They're great, they're expressive, they nourish me and they challenge me." Here is mine: "A painting on the wall as a window into another world. It makes the room such big as you can only imagine."
