Your probably wondering if while I have been writing all these deep and thought provoking posts if whether I have been doing any artwork. The answer is yes! I have made 2 new mixed media watercolor pieces and also been diligently putting together the new works for the upcoming summer Cloth Paper Scissors publication. Truth is I have been sitting quite a bit in my pretty pink chair. Here is one of my new pieces... this one is not for the publication. This is a piece I plan on making into Valentines Day cards, which will be up for purchase in my Etsy shop really soon :)
Some more exciting news I have yet to share is that I recieved an email notifying me that Carnival in a Cotton Town has been chosen to appear on the Expression pages of Somerset Studio come this March issue!!!! Here is the piece below if you don't quite remember.
I was very excited to get that email! I always had a feeling even when creating the above piece that it should be sent to Somerset. Glad I trusted my creative gut. I even had some bravery when I recieved the email and asked the person who sent it if they would know how I could be featured in a more prounounced feature in the magazine. She was super nice and sent me another email address of someone who would know. So I took that bravery and emailed that other address. I have yet to hear back, but I have faith that I will. Remember, that it never hurts to ask... and it never hurts to seek out that which you want. What's the worst that can happen, the word no? Well who cares about no, no is just a road block... not the drop off a cliff.
