Finally Arrived!


I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of my "Legacy" magazine!!!! Today after a long day of shopping with my daughter and two daughter-in-laws and three babies.......I arrived home to find a heavy box from Somerset Studios. There were my 10 ........count them.......10 copies of "Legacy" magazine with MY ARTWORK on the cover! I still can hardly believe it! I have never been published before and what a way to start.....on the cover of one of my favorite publications. I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled and excited I am! The article inside turned out very well and the photography is beautiful! WOW, I still have to pinch myself to believe my luck:) By the way, the ten copies are for our kids.....just so you don't think I am wallpapering the powder room with them...ha....ha!

I just got my legacy today also. I ripped it open to read about Connie Stuart, who I love & saw your work which is wonderful as well. It gave your blog info so here I am. Congrats on your first publication. Hope you have many more. I can't wait to see more of your art.

So wonderful!!! I read the article last night and the part about feeling giddy with everything vintage is so true! I felt like I co-wrote the article so strongly did I agree with everything you said! Everything about the cover and the pictures inside is simply stunning! I am still giddy! Did you see the artists paper inside is based on your cover piece too!!! This whole thing MAKES ME SO HAPPY!!!!
Congratulations Linda!!!!

Congratulations, Linda! That's your first time being published? I'm very surprised. I assumed from seeing your wonderful art that you'd been published before. What a great feeling it must be!

Hi Linda - I must say I don't usually read Legacy, but when I was in Borders Books yesterday it suddenly caught my eye - because of the beautiful cover art! I took it to the cafe to look thru it and was thrilled to see the cover art was by YOU! Congratulations - it's lovely...!! And your article was very interesting.

How exciting to be on the COVER the first time you are published!

And didn't I see you in the coming events for the next issue??
