Here you see a painting that I had commissioned many years ago to be a prize at a symposium that did not happen. It seems that after 25 years no one was interested in learning more about his or her profession. Unfortunately, it was cancelled and at a very big loss. I wanted a painting that represented us and thus had it called it “The Professional.” Riveted to the wing-shaped frame, complete with real rivets, is the plaque that I felt represented us doing it right no matter what the task or where we were. We are professionals in every sense and should be very proud of it. I am!
