Hi everyone, sorry we haven't posted in so long. it's been busy and i forgot how to use the blog. anyway, Fred has resumed teaching, here he is with Sarah Doremus in his studio during a casting class. He also has started driving again, at least for short distances. he continues PT twice a week and is recovering at a rapid clip. We have begun scheduling classes. We both teach at OCAC in Portland, OR in the spring and then go out to the coast to the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology for more classes. We will both be in Door County WI next summer at the Peninsula Art School and will particpate in the haystack mentor program here on the island.

the other photo is a recent hilarious visit with Bill Daley and Bobby Hanson( playing his tin can instrument.) You can imagine this combination of artist/characters! Bill and Bobby were up for the Haystack week for faculty. Other visitors also from the Haystack faculty week included Hiro Morimoto, Marcia McDonald, Patti Daunis, Arlene Fish etc. lots of good conversation!

We've scheduled a month on Lopez Island in the San Juan's, Washington , for March to get away from the cold Maine winter.

i'll have him write something soon
love to all
