Premier Dalton McGuinty, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA

The Mail Strike is over and I'm delighted to open the mailbox and see mail again. My Autographed portrait postcard series are in the mix of backloged mail . . This one from Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty arrived yesterday. 
With each arrival I feel as if W.R. Bray himself sends a smile.

Jason Berlin, Longview, WA, USA

Thanks to Jason for an incredible package that arrived this morning . . this oil painting, was part of an envelope filled with all sorts of ephemera. The gallery continues to grow and with each entry become more of a delight to the visitors that come through the space. More on Jason and his work at his site: Jason Berlin Art Diary

Karl dropped by the studio this week bearing gifts  and this portrait card . . and he gave me a new word "Verschnorkel" in reference to the studio and the abundance within.
