i've been published
i came home to the see this sitting on my end table. it was my complimentary issue of Somerset Studio Gallery.
last year, i submitted two pieces created in misty's online class, Stretching Within, and lo and behold they chose to publish both pieces in the Summer 2012 issue. i was over the moon when they first contacted me with the news.
but to see it in print. well, that was a whole other story. i thought i was going to pee my pants with excitement.. it's such a surreal thing.
not sure what this means to me yet. does it validate my artistic abilities. does it make me an 'artist'. will i now be taken seriously as an artist. still processing why the need to get published. recognized. perhaps it's more of a way of connecting with the world. connecting with the viewer. for me, i think it's all about connection.
don't know. but what i do know is, it sure feels good. xoxx
p.s. be sure to check out the other artists in the stretching within group, Jenny Wentworth, Wanda Miller, to name but a few that have also been published in this issue.
