Thank you.

You don't know how moving it is for me to open my email and come across all these generous good-wishes from you all. Most of you I've never met, but I feel like I've got all these wonderful friends. It makes me almost giddy to read your comments. Thank you very much.

"Villa Rica Work Crew" was the clean-up crew during the Villa Rica Pet Parade back in the fall. Villa Rica is a tiny little town 30 minutes west of Atlanta. A train runs through it, so there are a couple of shopping strips on either side of the tracks, with little restaurants, antique shops, the Villa Rica Police Department. The whole span of 'downtown' Villa Rica is about 3 blocks. It's a cozy little place, 3 minutes from I-20. I never have to deal with traffic, unless I choose to go into Atlanta, which I do regularly. Yet I can pretend I'm in the middle of NYC in my little loft. I'm looking forward to getting to know the place.

One more thing I've been doing in my recent absence...my how-to video, shot with a Flip video camera, and edited on my beloved mac. Totally totally cool technology for technological morons like me.

It sells for $29.95 plus shipping. You can get it on my web site at http://www.margaretdyer.com/books.html


  1. It is going to be great, I am so happy for you, your clients and students. Villa Rica is situated right off the interstate where one enters this charming town with all its secrets (food and shopping I am thrilled in every respect. Couldn't have timed it better, just in time to celebrate spring.

  2. Margaret, that is awesome! Soon you will have to have a Villa Rica show to let them in on your work. Those workers would be thrilled to know they were the subject of one of your master pieces.

    Hey, when am I comimg to see your new digs?

  3. I've really enjoyed your new DVD; It's very professional and well-done! I feel like I've learned a great deal and it definitely makes me want to try pastels.

  4. Margaret...What camera did you use. Did you use a tripod?

    On another note, congratulations on your selection to Watts Gallery in Zionsville. I'm from Indy, so look forward to seeing the originals.
