  1. Kelly!

    You’ve moved! I hope that working with Streamline Publishing is satisfying as a career step and widens the your art community even more than before!

    I thought of you a few months ago because of you are always on the look-out for interesting art and artists. Last Fall, I attended a watercolor retreat and one of the artists, Sid Bingham is dedicated Cross Fit athlete. He told me about a body of work he had done, of his fellow Cross Fit buddies working out. Sid also organized a show and reception at the gym! I marveled about his ingenuity in choosing a subject and exhibition venue that was meaningful to him.
