HI Mike, Not sure you remember me, Susann Gude. You did some photo work for me when I had a Patchogue Main Street Studio back in the 90's. I'm so sorry about your mom, a piece of us goes with the ones we love. I have a medium friend who is fantastic if and when you are ready. I just came across the little book you gave me so many years ago and I felt inspired to contact you. I teach at SUNY Farmingdale, Photography and we have a gallery called The Memorial Gallery, they change the show every month, it may be an interesting venue for you. I'm at email@example.com or leave a message at www.gudephotography.com
Sorry about your mom. The above painting reminded me of a woman spirit soaring thru the universe.
