Artful Blogging Feature

This was in my mailbox yesterday.  Yep.  Talk about a heart stopping moment.  You see the magazine comes in a plastic sleeve with a letter on top saying, "Congrats for being featured here's your advanced copy".  I couldn't see the cover.  When I ripped off the plastic and the letter and saw that my little hot air balloon was on the cover....well I just about cried. 

This journey has been amazing.  Really.  And seeing my work and words in this gorgeous magazine makes me realize how fortunate I am to have been given this gift.  Creative people don't ask for the gifts, they are given to them you know.  Sometimes it's difficult to be this creative soul.  Always wanting more for my art and what I put out there, wondering if it's enough, praying it'll be well received .  Reading the article I truly became emotional.  Even though the words came from my own hands and mind, they were words that touched my heart with their truth.  I can not thank Jennifer Jackson Taylor enough for publishing the words and pictures.  It is a beautiful layout. 
Again, the Show Opening is literally around the corner....March 15th and 16th at the Naked Art Gallery in Birmingham, Alabama.  Vero has been so gracious with my entire artful journey since the beginning.  I can not wait to share this journey's end right back at the root of my personal journey as an artist.

  3. Your cards are extremely lovely and not so over-the-top that they cannot fit into an envelope for mailing. Your details really enhance each color and style. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...
