Bad News

Hello folks.  I am sorry to inform you that I will not be posting for awhile.  My wife and I have two units in a storage facility which, unfortunately were flooded, due to the torrential rains we have had, and a nearby creek over topped its banks, sending water into the entire facility.

My wife had a considerable amount of her artwork stored there, and we will be days of drying out her things.  Ironically, while all the mats are gone, water color paper does survive!  We just have to keep it from becoming stained and moldy.  We think all of the frames survived, which is good.  But thousands of dollars worth of matting is gone.

Hope to be back posting in a week or so.


  1. That's a huge bummer, John. I've dealt with flooding before, and it's awful. All the best to you both as you sort through things. Try to find moments for laughter and relief.

  2. Thanks to both! Water's gone, but we have a herculean task ahead. Give me a week. or so, and I'll try to post something positive.
