Hi, Eileen--

I wanted to edit the post and couldn;t, so I removed the first one and am reposting here.
Nice reporting. I'm swiping one of the pix shot at my house for my own blog entry, to be posted soon.

Meanwhile, may I add some facts to your post?
.Correct spelling for panelists' names: Richard Frumess, Hope Turner.
. The painter you showed is Alexandre Masino
.The white paper piece you called amazing is by Lori Fredette.
.And who was that chunky person you identified as me? ;-)

As a new member of IAE, it is nice to have a few faces to go with the names. Thanks for this report from the conference. I want to put it on my calendar for next year.

Hi,again, Eileen--

And now let me correct my own spelling. The white paper piece you called amazing is by Lorrie Fredette(not Lori as I originally said.)
