Susan, What an incredible show - on so many levels - the visual excellence is amazing - the creative journey depicted for model and artist is enlightening and empowering for all including the viewer. It reminds me of a quote from a famous photographer about how you must love your subject. This is a project of love, creative excellence and a greater vision for social change. Well done!!! ~ KB

It is all amazing - so reaffirming. you did a wonderful thing in showing the reality and beauty that lies therein. Thank you and carry on. ~ DLH
Susan - I was taken by the joy that came through - in the meeting place between artist/model/viewer/materials - still room for mystery - shadow and pain - but lots of joy. I, too, loved "Illumination". Also, faces revealed so much ("Valley") and kept some things hidden. The vulnerability & beauty of the feet in the Mother/Daughter Jock painting totally moved me. ~ LS
Thank you to each of you who took the time to think about the show and comment on it. I am so very grateful for your kind words. They will inspire me to continue with my work if ever things get tough.
