It's the Lifestyle Magazine Article!!

Today is my BIG day! The Lifestyle magazine article by Rich Breault is published. A couple of people already called me to say they saw it even before I did. HB went out and bought several copies so I can send them to my kids. Here is the article (I hope you can read it):

(click on the pictures to enlarge)

The picture above was also on the front of the magazine
....along the bottom as a teaser

The only discrepancy I can see is that I've never painted on toilet paper! I have used it to create a molded dress to make a piece of art but I can't imagine how difficult it would be to try to paint on toilet paper. Overall, I think the article is very nice and I like the pictures Rich chose to show. I don't know if this will help me connect with area artists or not but I hope so. I did try to contact one etsy artist that Rich told me about but she never answered any of my emails. I would love to meet other artists and get to know them.

I've been keeping up with my index cards and will be back tomorrow to show you the latest ones. And maybe even some other art as well. See you then....

  9. Wow, what a lovely article! How wonderful for you! Hope you do get to connect with other local artists through this.

    The TP thing made me laugh. My sister used to correspond with one of our cousins, who wasn't very quick about replying. It transpired she was really low on cash and couldn't buy the nice notepaper she liked to write on very often. My sister told her she didn't mind what she wrote on, even TP, as long as she kept in touch. The next letter was written on...you guessed it, TP!

  31. Oh my gosh! I've been scrolling back, seeing what else I missed while I've been such a wayward blogger, and even though it may seem like old news to you - it's new news to me and I'm so excited for you! I'm so glad your artwork is garnering such great recognition, Janet - you and your art, definitely deserve the attention!
