At the risk of embarrassing myself, I share these kind words.
"I don't know you, and it's been YEARS since I had any lesson in art. I just wanted to say I read and view your blog and art daily and am truly thankful for all that you do. You keep me going. Thank you, Casey."
"Thanks for all the inspiration and sharing thoughts about your creative process on your blog, it's a treat to read!"
"I love your Winter Light! Good luck with the exhibition."
"(...)liked your blog, and love your work. Such beautiful color and abstractions."
"Dear Mr. Klahn,
Thank you for your link to Roger Scruton's video on Beauty. I am currently drafting a catalog essay on the nature of joy and it is refreshing and delightful to hear how clearly he frames his argument.
By the way I have enjoyed your work & blogs for some time now. Please keep up the good work.
All the best..."A comment from Katherine A. Cartwright to 100 Things I Love About Art: "101. Casey Klahn!"
"Congratulations Casey on your new blog. I have been following both (T)he Colorist and your Pastel blog for a number of years now and wanted to thank you for the incredible amount of information you offer up to your readers. It was your blogs that inspired me to fan the flame of my passion for the pastel medium and colorist painting. I was able to use much of the information for the creation of Canada's first and only pastel specialty shop, Pastel Studio Canada. In the spring I met Diane Townsend at her home in PA, and this November Isabelle Roche will be visiting the shop. Our future looks bright and I wish the same for you.
Warmest regards from Canada.
