It was a busy, busy but very enjoyable weekend and thanks to everyone who made it so. If you would like to see a sample of what Shem Caulfield presented at his seminar on Saturday morning, click here. After being in Shem’s company for a couple of hours, listening to him and seeing his beautiful images, for me, and for the others who attended, a gate will never again be just a gate. There really is an epic in the detail!
