Several months back I was contacted by the Special Projects Director at Country Sampler requesting permission to publish this photo which I shot several years ago of a wall display I created in my studio. Well of course I said yes, not only because it is always a treat being published in a magazine but also because it features my favorite collection of spun cotton pumpkins by my dear friend
Charlene is a super talented artist, (yes I said ARTIST Charlene) admired by many. She has a gentle spirit and kind soul and although we only see one another once maybe twice a year there is an instant connection upon reuniting. Charlene will understand this when I say that I'm pretty certain we are going to end up being best friends or cell mates... either way, I'm okay with that.
