nelda ream

Congratulations on your book, Misty! I can hardly wait to see it...and your pictures of Italy.


Wowza! Congrats on the impending realities soon to be. I know the feeling - you work and look towards something far far off into the future and then when that future becomes present you still find yourself in the habit of looking towards. The present doesn't sink in until it's tactile.
Your book looks WONDERFUL and I'm sure Italy will be too. Me... well I'm still sitting in anticipation for a winter spent painting in Vermont. Coming up right quick but still not real ; )

Chris Meissner

Hi Misty, Congratulations! I am looking forward to your book! Have a lovely time in Italy. Hugs, Chris


Oh, you will LOVE Italy...it will capture your heart, I am sure of it! It's one of those places...that gets down into your soul, and you can't let it go. It will be with you always...Can you tell I am missing it?

And, I will be thinking about you in Italy (and also wishing I could have been there creating art with you...I really really wanted to make it work...but next time!)

And a book! Yay! I have never been so excited about a book coming out. You know how I feel about your art, and your workshops...I am counting the days till I can get the book ;-)

Have a GRAND time in Italy! Be safe. Enjoy...and share with us :-)

All the best,


a book!?! really!?! ah, be still my heart! :)
