There is a very good review in today’s Erie Times-News of my Kada Gallery show, Inward Bound, written by Karen Rene Merkle who has reviewed my Erie shows in the past.  Reviews of any kind have become more and more scarce over the years as the influence of the newspaper has waned in most markets, especially in those the size of  Erie, so I am always interested in seeing what an unbiased observer might see in my work.  As an artist, you set up a defense mechanism of sorts by trying not to put too much emphasis on what someone might say or write about your work.  But in the end,  your human nature wins out and you react accordingly.  When someone knocks your work, even in respectful terms, it still bothers you. Conversely, when someone praises your work you are happily satisfied.  This is, as I said, a very good review so I am happily satisfied.  I have written here that I felt  that this show was a very strong group of work and it is gratifying that someone such as Ms. Merkle takes the time and effort to  take a long and  insightful look at it.

Thanks so much for the kind words, Karen.  It is most appreciated.
