I was a student of Eric Bransby the first year he taught at the University of Missouri at Kansas City. He was a hero at the time because I loved figure drawing. He taught me to focus on structure where before I concentrated on the gesture. He was a great encouragement to me in getting my MFA. Great teachers are to be appreciated and Eric Bransby was a great teacher as well as a great muralist and printmaker.
I was completely blown away and awed by the Floyd Tunson piece that is hanging in the lobby of the FAC. It is beautiful and spectacular.

Kirsten, Sandra's comment, "it's easy to fall into the victimization of being a woman and expecting somebody to come along and pick up the pieces" struck a cord with me. I fell into that trap early in life and went through hell and back because of it. If anyone else has experienced this, I recommend reading "Riding Through It", a memoir I wrote about how I victimized myself from my early teens through the age of 30. I want to share this experience so that other women won't do it!!! It can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks for the article on Miz B, who seems to have taken control of her life quite nicely! -Carol McKibben

Sarah is a lovely person who paints even more lovely pictures! Denver misses her dearly.
Scotland misses Sarah like crazy. We wish her and her family a very merry Christmas, a hoot of a Hogmany and look forward to her visits to The Highlands.
Really an amazing poet: one of those secretly famous kinds that hit the nail on the head without making a fuss. Versatile and funny, too, thank god. We all need more humor.
