in any event... he got two paintings accepted into the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Show at the Silver Eye Gallery in Pittsburgh the weekend of our gathering. So it looks like I won't be able to make it. The good news is, I picked up an 8x10 Kodak 2d with a lens and *one* film holder for $500! Not sure if that's a good price or not, but I'll pick it up tomorrow. wish I could join you this weekend.
