The artists and articles in the magazine inspired me and gave me so many ideas for my own daily painting practice. It has been an invaluable tool for me. I dreamed of one day being 'good enough' to have my work in the magazine. I had my first break with a mention in an article on studio spaces written by the wonderful Deborah Secor. I was thrilled. But then I was honored to be a part of an article on painting flowers in the June 2014 issue. And to make it even better my painting made the cover! I was beyond thrilled.
I am thrilled again to share that I have an article in this month's issue of Pastel Journal. It is actually a column on planning a painting. You'll have to get a copy of the magazine or better yet subscribe to read my article! I know you won't regret making this magazine a part of your art study!
