  2. Last week we met your son, John, in Signaghi, Georgia at his studio. He is a delightful young man. We very much enjoyed our time with him. We purchased a painting which he is putting on exhibit at the Historical Museum. At his suggestion we will be mailing you a check this week.

  3. Hello John!!

    It has been several years since we met but I think of you and your gallery often. I found your exquisite blog through Blogged, as I moved my blog to my website and have listed mine with them as well.

    I hope you are doing famously with the gallery. I do so much want to visit. Perhaps after my solo show in October. My husband and I need a break so may come up.

    All the best to you my friend.

  4. I met you in 1999 in Shenako, Tusheti..then I met your wonderful wife 2001 on Grove Ave…O my gosh you two changed my world and I thank you deeply for that! Your gallery is the most astonishing place, fabulous paintings. I love what you and Mrs. Kathy do. With respect, Eka 🙂
