Great to have another lesson with Sarah. I have registered and will be eager for the video tutorial. Unfortunately due to the late hour I will not be able to join personally.

Pls. take my best wishes to Sarah, who I admire extraordinarily as artist and especially also as a teacher. I was able to meet her personally at the 1st Städtler symposium in Nuremberg, an impressive experience!

Best regards,
