After a terrible week of grief and sadness, the SUN came out and I received some exciting news. The Dec./Jan. issue of Legacy Magazine will have my artwork on the cover. I was also told that my artwork will appear in two articles in the Feb./March issue. There will also be a short piece on my tin ornaments. The other news I had was that my "books boxes" will be featured in the March/April issue of Somerset Studio! Along with all the good news comes the reality that I have 4 more articles to write.......and soon! I will have to get busy quickly since several are due by Oct. 15th. It is such a thrill to have someone validate your work. I like what I do, but have no idea how others will see it. I guess that is what I like about the blog.......the only thing is everyone writes such wonderful comments that you never really get a critique! Not that I am complaining. I savor each and every positive comment:-D I have always been so happy for others that have been published........an artist being recognized is so wonderful! BUT, I never had any idea it would happen to me. I need to pinch myself a couple of time and then about an hour later...pinch, pinch again. I guess it won't sink in until I see it in print:-D) Well, that is my brag session and I thank you for playing along!
