    Thanks guys. Very appreciated. I will try to bring it to club again for those(many) not present last Wednesday.A little update re my trip to Chicago.Award wise it was a good show since I got a gold for both painters and open categories. My seminar went very well too and was well attended. I was a little wary since sunday morning is not a good time to hold a seminar in the american shows.But approximately 50 people turned up and from the response the seminar was well recieved.Will try to obtain a video of it.

    BDW is sasquatch got silver too so he merits a pat on the back also !!!
