No real exciting details to add to that Cynthia. Below is a diagram of the past year of unique hits to my site. Notice that in October, the graph takes off. This month am already on pace to surpass 1000.

As far as commissions go, for some reason, I am getting quite a few portrait orders - for dogs! One could say that my career is going to the dogs, but I don't mind one bit. Another job presented to me (still in the very early stages of discussion)is to make six life size figures to be installed at a house in the Hamptons, NY. I am not sure how to even begin to bid this one. The kicker is that they are to be cast in concrete, and even though my foundry would do all of that plus installation, I'm not sure I have the confidence yet to accept such a large commission and still keep my day job. Life is certainly getting more interesting these days.

Wow, thanks for showing the graph Heidi. I love seeing things like that and it makes my job much more rewarding.

Would you mind if I use that graph in some of my promo materials? I wouldn't use your name. And, do you happen to have a larger version of it that you could email me?

Cynthia, you made my 365x N days, now is your day

Unlike some established artists, joining SOG was my career turning point.
Also unlike most, if not to say all of the SOG artists, here, I received a God-sent when I was bothered by robbery and other criminals .
This year, my alumna found me to paint her son, by my updated website...
Thank you for millions,
Cynthia!

與一些藝術家不同,加入SOG是我職業生涯的轉折點。
又不同於大多數,如果不是說所有的SOG藝術家,在這裡,當我受到搶劫和其他罪犯困擾和糾纏, 我收到了上帝禮品。
今年,我的校友找到我畫她的兒子,來自 我的更新網站...
感謝您,以百萬計,
辛西婭!

Happy birthday to Cynthia!

Without SOG I wouldn't be doing this career at all. Thanks again, Cynthia!

Dear Cynthia,
As an owner of a forum and mailing list for porcelain artists, I know how unappreciated it feels sometimes.

Please know that even though I haven't had time the past 5 years to participate here, I often check it and am thrilled to read all the posts. Many times I don't sign in and just read. However, I think that you have made the BEST place for professionals on the internet.

Please know that we appreciate all that you have done here. It is truly amazing, enjoyable, and you are delightful to deal with.

Thank you, my dear.

SOG has helped me SO much, when I was getting started and each year as I try to move my career to the next level. I couldn't do any of it without you, Cynthia!
