Re: Thank you, i learned from the best!

I was going to add a PS to Carmen's summary of her current life situation to note (just in passing you understand) that that "sainted husband" of hers is also smashingly handsome -- & the two little girls possibly more beautiful than may be good for them. But now I need another PS to say what may be obvious -- Carmen has a MOST generous imagination, not just as an artist, but as former student and colleague. So I can only blush and say, "wouldn't it be loverly?" However and meanwhile, my thanks.....

Thank you so much , Diana and Don, I would love to
show them to you! I have only showed them to Judy
Seigel. I did learned to gum print from her. It was a
wonderful gift having this wonderfully talented and
smart woman as my teacher. I am so lucky, every time I
have a gum "glitch" I just ask her. she is so
intuitive and without a doubt, she is always right.

I'm right there with Diana on that one as well and
her other gums that she
once had posted on her temporary web page.

Hi Carmen,

On a slightly different topic, I just wanted to say
that I saw your
gum image, "American Flag Blue House,"  in
Christopher James' latest
edition and was absolutely bowled over by it.  Just
incredible.  I
would love to see that (22x30) in real life.  So
rich, on so many
levels-- very impressive.

Thank you so much to all of you who responded. I
use a lot of chemicals in my work, but I am also
careful, after all, I do want to see my children
up. And about Mom being gone: I am a full time art
faculty for the State University of New York at
Paltz, and my kids are very well adjusted to my
schedule. I also bake cookies, cook dinner every
night, sing them songs to bed. I do sweep the dog
and other unsightly things under the sofa with my
foot, that saves me time to go to my studio and
some work.  I scold my children when they don't
behave, which are why they just LOVE to be with
grandparents who spoiled them rotten. I also have
sainted husband who is a stay home dad, but it's
managing to build me a house and goes to his
studio from 10:00 pm to 3:00am.  I guess that now
are all friends, since I told you a bit my life as
