Vicki Van Rossum -
I enjoyed looking at all the pieces. I found all the art I viewed to be wonderful. And I was happy to have been chosen as a judge. I had seen the artform before, as it is something my daughter does on a limited scale. I even have something she made for me.
I did not know however that is was called pyrography. 
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this wonderful exhibit of art,
and hats off to all the participants.
