Comments: hi Russ,I was looking at the stutler family tree and now am curious about my stutler bloodline.I can remember my grandpa reading me the stutler/stettler book to me when i was younger but he passed when i was in the fourth grade. I'm now twenty nine and feel a great wanting of knowing my family history. I remember my grandpa saying his aunt or someone to that nature was native american. any feed back or additional info or websites would be greatly appreciated. my great grandparents where Kenneth and Grace Stutler of west milford,wv and that is as far back as i know.
Admin reply: Hi Justin,
Glad to hear from a distant relative. All the info I have on the family tree is already posted on this web site but there is a Stutler family web site where all the family researchers are in one place. Lots of photos and data. I'll send you membership info by e-mail.

Comments: Thanks Russ, here is our website for new psalms and hymns: www dot newkirkpsalmshymns dot weebly dot com
As you will see the psalms are metrical. Also have a few rounds for children...but Psalm 116 is a canon using Tallis Canon. Have some service music too.
Our denominational sister church is Mitaka Evangelical Church, the Pastor is Rev. Ralph Smith...ever happen to meet?
Btw, love your artwork!
Pastor Brian L. Penney
Admin reply: Great web site, and a great idea to gather the work of various composers in one place. I know Mitaka (the city) but have not had the honor to meet Rev. Smith (as far as I can recall). Thanks!

Comments: I'm sure Mr. Stutler's Psalm-songs are better than mine, but learning Psalm verses through song, is a wonderful way to keep the Word of God in your heart.
I have a few songs I put together. They are on my website called:
Maybe some of you can tell me what you think. God Bless ya'll!
Admin reply: Well, there are very few Psalm songs for which I can personally take credit! You are doing a valuable work! Thanks!

Comments: Russ, Wow, great website. Lots to see. I teach Sketchbook Workshops and bought Mitchner's book on Hokusai's Sketchbooks when I was on my way to Japan in 1968. I too refer to his work. Sketching School by Judy Martin is another great book on Sketching. I share your love of pen, sketchbooks, Hokusai, and Japan. I've traveled there many times in the past 43 years. I have many dear friends in Japan.
My 73rd Sketchbook is on my desk here as I continue to teach (mainly adults now) about the power and use of the sketchbook in their lives.
Thanks for your site and stories from your life. Ken
Admin reply: Hi Ken,
Wow, we do have a lot of common interests! Thanks for the message!

Comments: Whoa! Blasts of Pentracerian pasts.... I have taken up drawing again after quite a hiatus (to work, familial bondage, to play music...) and somehow, as if by an INEXORABLE FORCE - I happen upon ol' Russ from Pentrace! Or it might have just been chance, that happens too. But from our limited perspective, "chance" and "inexorable forces" would probably appear very, very, very similar.... eee-eee-eee..... so what's the big diffie, really? Beeyorp the dinger above, I'll beeyorp back (as if by an inexorable f-f-f... aw never mind!)
Admin reply: Hello Mister Stubhead. I'm honored by your presence here! And also by your re-entering the ranks of artists in the world. Thanks for the message!

Comments: Enchanting site. Nicely written and the sketches are very fresh and pleasing. My daugher went to a language school in Tokoyo for three years. She taught English lessons on the side. I sent her a link to your site so she can enjoy it too. God bless you for your work and carry you through the difficult times.
