    Like an exercise in Southern "who's your family" chess played out in the commission and painting of family portrait miniatures. Elle is incredibly well informed about miniatures, the market history, the artists and the sitters. Fascinating!

    Paula, I've shared your question with a few of our members who can give you their insights and experience.

    This is a perfect question to ask the speaker after the lecture when she takes audience questions - I'll bet lots of people wonder the same things.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
