I am still here.

This has been a fantastic experience. What a treat, not only to go home with more information than I came with, but to be around so many people who share the same passion for portraiture that I do.

I got to meet some of the people that I have felt so close to because of this forum. That in and of itself was worth the trip.

This is my first time attending the PSOA event and it will take a great deal from now on to keep me away.

I just got back today. Great conference and fun meeting everyone!

Tony and Garth both got Honors Awards. The finalist portraits were all wonderful - very stiff competition.

The SOG dinner that Cynthia hosted on Friday evening was great and we were honored to have Simmie Knox and his wife join us. He shared about his commission for Pres. Clinton and Hillary.

Next year's conference will be the first weekend in May in Dallas Texas. Hope to see everyone there!

Every year they say the conference is sold out so be sure to sign up early for next year. My suggestion is that if you think you might attend, send in your deposit and make hotel reservations as soon as the notices go out. You can always cancell by Feb if you change your mind, and hotel rooms can also be cancelled when it is closer with no penalty incurred. That will ensure your attendance even if it is a sold out conference.

Dear Judson,

How come I never spotted you among the hundreds of attendees milling about? Wasn't this event great! Did you see any Forum folks? They were everywhere! Too many to list.

Anyway, I had a great time too. Sorry we did not meet.

Here are some pics:

I'm so sorry to have missed out on meeting many of the Forum members at the convention. It really was a wonderul and exhausting few days! I'm just sitting here trying to decide which of my photos to post, many of which are mysteriously blurry or else will get me into trouble with somebody or other.

Big-time congratulations to Garth and Tony! Honors award, indeed! You guys certainly deserve such credit and recognition for the excellent work you do.

Geez, Garth - that photo of you makes me dizzy. They had a rollercoaster ride at the conference? Well, I'll plunk down the $ next time if they have the Lightning Loops on hand!
