Lincolnville, A Sketchbook Journal"...we saw your exhibit at the Art Association and picked up one of your books and we must say: FANTASTIC! You captured the neighborhood beautifully. And our house never looked better. (I have to do some yard work now!) But this is such a distinctive and unique and gritty and wonderful area. It took someone with just the right eye and ability to bring out what makes it so special. You captured it. Your book will occupy a special spot in our house.Thanks, and see you around the 'ville.Brian Thompson and company"I devoured every page of the book - it's wonderful and should be ranked alongside all your other fine accomplishments!"
