Oh Michelle, I can see we'd get along great. I'm going to an artists' pecha kucha night here in Florence at the Ex3 contemporary art gallery. And of course we're both organizing Slow Art events.

Your art is simply BEAUTIFUL.

Alexandra, So glad I sent you the link! Wonderful to meet you. Inter-world in pretty nice sometimes connecting people from the other side of the world. I have found PKN and SlowArt do that very well. It has been amazing being involved in both. Looking forward to our conference call for Slow Art. Phil has rounded up some great people. Coincidentally, you being in Italy is incredibly crazy, as we were planning a trip for end of summer and Firenze was on the list. We were planning on driving from Italy to Brasov, RO. Life is crazy, so fingers crossed. If I happen to go, I will let you know! cheers, Michelle
