A Secret Admirer of Dale's Art
Oh Dale, how I do wish you could put music on your pages, it would so delight your viewers (and convert them to listeners as well). Warm regards to a great assemblage artist from a "secret admirer" of your art!

I found your site searching for info about encaustic painting - and found much more. Beautiful work.
A question - is damar resin the same thing as the crystals used to make damar varnish?

Great website, such diversity & both of you use such interesting techniques. I am a huge fan of 'Big Game'& had the pleasure of seeing it first hand at the 'Like minds like mine' exhibition. I am an artist who has just moved to New Plymouth with my family & was very fortunate to have one of my own works included in that exhibition. I felt especially honoured when I saw so many exciting pieces such as your own.
Great work.

Claudette Hunter Dale,
I don't usually write fan mail. I'm an American living in Japan, 54, doing collage and altered books. I very much appreciate your work and the straightforward manner in which you communicate. Please tell me more about your book "The Second Half" (cost?) as I'm exploring feelings about this time in my life. I'll come back and explore your website again. Well done, by the way
Sincerely, Claudette

From time to time I log onto your Website to enjoy your great and incredible art pieces for both enjoyment and inspiration. I draw/paint in pastel, watercolor and oils with emphasis on portraiture and teach in all media. Have gifted students as young as 6 and and as old as 70-something. Am giving them your Website address so they, too, can log onto your site from time to time.
Two years ago we hosted a young man from North Island NZ and this prompted me to check into your site when I found it listed. You may be quite a way 'down under' from my location in Central California, USA, but you are really 'Way up There' in fabulous art pieces.

How do you explain to people the ritual of purchasing a house and then moving it to where you want to live? Although it is done in the states it is not at all common. Your pictures are wonderful.

I'm a bit of a painter, trying to get into web site creation/design after a lifetime of computer work. I love the paintings, especially the garden. The assemblies I think need to be looked at in 'real life' to be appreciated but they do look intrieging. Maybr I'll see some of your works when in NZ next december:hope so. Keep up the good work!

Tan Rambo just doing some research on encaustics when I stumbled onto your site. cool clouds, dazzling detail, if I wasn't on the other side of the Pacific, well, you know how little justice a monitor does to a canvass.

I enjoyed some great childhood years in Okato, and lived in Puniho rd at Brooklands piggery (is it still there?)
The photo of the beach brought back some pretty strong memories all good. Loved the website very inspiring. the painting of Oakura is wonderful.

But that's OK it's been great.

Hi Dale and Paul
I got into your web site after searching for info on encaustics--love the dada piece by the way. I'm a painter working in Boston USA on a series of collage/encaustic panels using natural subject matter, my own watercolor paintings and tons of old ephemera.
Also love the assemblages, Dale. You have to check out my friend Keith's web page--he is a junk artist extroidenaire! Type www.lobue-art.com.
Again, I really enjoyed your site!

Dale, reviewed your work on the TART site and it really looks impressive.
I especially like and am grateful for the art that you created for the Ars Nova 2000 Gallery. For your viewers who have not yet had the pleasure of seeing this new work I will add the URL http://home.earthlink.net/~jcleyen/gallery_guide.htm
Best regards to you, Toby and Paul.

Congradulations on a fabulous lifestyle
We so miss the land of the long white cloud but are over here on a higher call! shearing sheep in the outback of Australia. Been here for 16 years now.
Paul I love your painting of Oakura beach I certainly believe that a gift such as you have comes from a very spiritual souce. To be able to connect with creation with such depth as you have shown in this piece is out standing and I can only commend you for it and also praise our God creator of the universe for allowing me to veiw it.
Dale I love your books and creations Toby your so cute I love your fury friends god bless you all

Just stopped in for a visit. I think you're very right, - not bad at all! - I loved Paul's painting of that beach. I must see it some day. Not doing much painting these days. My Dad died on Jan. 27, and now my Mom's light is flickering. I've decided to take a long road trip after she's gone. I'm trying to start a painting of my Dad, I think that will also do me some good. Next time I'll be more upbeat, I swear.

I enjoyed both Paul's and Dale's artwork.
I found you by way of the collage onelist. I am also an artist.
I have painted realistically in oils, sculpted figuratively in clay, and now put together small collages.

Paul, I also work in encaustics. I love the quality of color I get using beeswax with oil paint. I have been getting sick from the fumes. I plan to buy the best quality

Thanks for your website Dale - I too am an assemblage artist with 30 years of collecting. I live just north of SF Bay, USA.
I would recommend some assemblage artists for you to enjoy: Joseph Cornell, Arman, Robert Rauschenberg, Lucas Samaras, George Herms.
Keep up the creative energy.
Thank you again,

When one has the beauty of art in one's life cash is of very little importance.
Your art is very good. Believe in it and all the cash you need will come. It will be provided. Believe it.

Hi, I surfed in to your site on a search for realist painting.
I am a realist painter myself, in graduate school in Georgia, USA.
You have a beautiful family, and I love your paintings, Paul, as well as your Assemblages, Dale!
Dale, you are such an intelligent, articulate woman.
your comments are to the point, saying so much with so few words.
I am inspired and impressed.
I hope someday I can have a family like yours.
Good luck, I will point you to my own website when I have one.
Oh, by the way, I will be living in Italy for 3 months in the spring.
How far away is New Zealand?

Gidday Paul,
Closest I got to art of any kind was being in the same class as Michael Smither at NPBHS.
That was moon or two back.
I used to surf at Oakura before they put up that bloody chimney you portray.
Are your works for sale and if so what price the painting of Oakura beach,
Cheers, John Graham
