  1. Thanks again, John. I don’t thank you for every post, but I should.
    Going to California for another illuminated journal class with Hannah–can’t wait. Glad I have your Sierra Nevada book, as we’ll be at Mono Lake.
    In return for your amazing generosity and wisdom, I would be honored to send your wife a pair of earrings, or a necklace–anything of your choice. I can send updated pictures if you like.

    Really enjoyed this month ‘s presentation on pencil technique and the discussion on light and shadow. Hope this is getting us much closer to the publication of your book on nature journalling.
