The first time my art was published, the first time my art was featured in a blog, and the first time i "hosted" an art challenge, all happened within one smashing week!
First, Jenn McLean, artist and blogger extraordinaire of Just Add Water Silly, did a feature on this artist and her art! She took me by surprised when she initially asked if she could write a feature about my art. It has been barely a year since I began my journey back to art; and I am still finding my voice & my medium. Yet Jenn wrote as if I am an established artist already. Bunches of thanks Jennifer for your generous spirit, talent and encouragement! You may read her feature here.
Second, it was the very first time i hosted the Inspiration Avenues Weekly art challenge. The theme I selected was art "Inspired by Words". We had twenty four awesome entries, making it very difficult selecting just one winner. In the end I selected a 3D piece of art by Angie called "Unwritten Poem".
Then, lastly, the magazine "Featuring" came out, and I'm in it! All of this thanks once again to Jennifer for asking me to submit a butterfly painting for "The Butterfly Project". This project is for the Holocaust Museum in TX. Jennifer wrote a wonderful article that "Featuring" published!
