I'm a cover girl!

I almost forgot some fun news. The editor of my old hometown newspaper asked me and my artist friend (also from the same town) for pics and bio to include in their visitors and newcomers guide. We were both thrilled that they wanted to include our information in the publication. My friend called me about two weeks ago when she saw the first image of the guide posted online, and my art was on the cover!

This is THE FIRST time I have had a painting on the cover of a publication. They were generous with the space they gave me and my friend/artist, Jane Campbell.

I'm heading to UPS to ship some paintings out tomorrow. One to the east coast, one to the west coast. Spreading some joy across the country.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
