I received an email the other day from an old friend I don't know - kind of what I love about the Internet and em. I met Pam once many years ago and have followed her ever since. She is a very, very successful artist. I own her works. I covet more of them. She emails me whenever she has new work to premier, is mounting a big show or hosting an event. She lives way across the country - on an island off Seattle. She has the life I want. She travels the world, painting. She is prolific. She sells a ton of her stuff. She immerses herself in all the beauty and light the world has to offer and then she records it, interprets it, expands on it. She makes memory tangible. Pam Ingalls. An artist in the Russian Impressionist tradition.
