What was fun though was getting to meet some really great people. I met two artists that day. A lovely lady by the name of Karen Gambale' Adezio who I am so glad I met. She runs the artist retreat Whispering Springs Haven in West Virginia. She told me all about her classes and I shared some of my experiences from going to Moore College of Art & Design. She had said she wanted to got there when she was young and was exited that I had. I look forward to the friendship I feel we started that Saturday morning talking about our art! We both agreed there was a reason for our meeting. The second artist I met was an elderly copper smith named Duilio Clemente. He was an absolute joy. He told my mama and I stories in broken English and sang me a song in Italian and even showed us a picture of a copper statue of liberty he sculpted that is now at Ripley's Believe It Or Not in Atlantic City. It's amazing the people you can meet just selling your old things in the front yard of a friends.
