Heilsa, Jovian!

        I, for one, took a lot of time and actually have *read* some of your
excellent documentation, which explained the art in enough detail for me to
understand the time, authenticity and care you put into the art.  

        Documentation can go a long way to explaining a lot of things, so
it's sad that some folks never seem to read it.  I know that my
documentation tends to the way too long... actually, I tend to write
research papers instead of documentation.  But I've watched my displays over
the years and have only seen maybe 10% of the folks judging the displays
actually take the time to read the documentation, or even glacne through it.

        This makes the body of work displays where the artist is present a
bonus, because you as the artist have a chance to verbally explain the ins
and outs of your arts form.
