    I am going to try this venue to ask of you have already done a workshop down in Norwich or New London? I miss being involved with other artists. Among other things, I want to become part of an artists’ community. I have been a figurative sculptor for a huge part of my life but in spite of having my works well received and awarded, i never had the funds to do lifesize. So I put away the clay and gave my kilns away. I have been painting in acrylics for the past several years and am finally feeling a little bit competent but want the support of a group of other painters. I am hoping you might be able to help me set that up.

Got something to say?
