Friends -
First of all, I want to thank those of you that came to the Studio Tour last month. I do these for the pleasure of visiting with friends and to meet new people interested in art, and maybe I make some money for a good cause at the same time. All of this happened, with M.O.R.E. and Alzheimer's Association as beneficiaries, and I am grateful to you. I left shortly after the tour to go hike in Utah canyons for 2 weeks. Now that I am back, the donations will be given to the deserving agencies.

This Hubble gourd is one that I actually started during the tour -- some of you may have noticed. Since I am a scientist by occupation and a casual fan of astrophysics, I had to acknowledge the wonderful photos that the Hubble has been bringing us lately. We invested in outfitting it with a new camera and spectrographs, and as a result we are seeing more images -- astonishingly gorgeous views of galaxies or explosive something's that happened probably hundreds of millions of years ago. Photographs of the very distant past!

I really like this Hubble gourd, and due to a dear 'almost family' member who was recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes, the amount that this gourd is sold for will be given to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Best regards -
