This is Eric Willie, Associate Professor of Percussion at Tennessee Tech University. The photo was taken in my studio the day he picked up his wife's surprise birthday gift. It was also the first time that we met as all our contact had been by email. Rebecca, Aiden, and Elina, you are a beautiful family, and I hope Dad will bring you all out to the farm for a visit.
Dawn Whitelaw, a nationally-known artist and workshop teacher, honored a dozen plein air painters by coming to my home to conduct a workshop. We were young and old, beginning plein air artists, and more advanced plein air artists, having a never-to-be-forgotten experience with Dawn. She was so encouraging and inspiring in her instruction!!! Mother Nature smiled on us, and it was a special day.
Jim is laughing at me trying to learn to edit my website. He's a pretty good teacher with what he has to work with. Bye for now.
