I just wanted you to know that I was reading your article in the OPUS Visual Arts Newsletter, and your statement,
"as a way to earn the interest of an exhibition partner and favourite partner to pursue is a charity."
This was like a bolt of lightning for me, as I have wanted to partner with the Nature Conservancy of Canada for a long time. I went right down to the North Shore OPUS store, (which I thought was on Marine Drive, but found out that they had moved to the mall across from Wallmart in North Van as we were visiting my mother) to purchase both of your books. I have just read, Artist Survival Skills and Making It. I have improved my Art portfolio tenfold with your advice in the book, and I now have a partnered exhibition with the Nature Conservancy of Canada set for May 11th in Osoyoos. I just had to let you know that this was all your doing, and without your amazing recommendations it might have been ages before I acted on your great ideas!
Just had to say how much I appreciate your column in OPUS, and your books! Thanks so much!
With kind regards,
