yay me!

I know I was going to make the next six posts about my little panel paintings, but I haven't finished the rest of them and right now I've moved on to medium and large paintings for the upcoming festival, so I will have to get back to those later.

I just wanted to take a minute to do a post on my recent accomplishment. I entered a piece in the Cloth Paper Scissors magazine 2010 calendar contest in February. In May, I found that my entry had been chosen to be in the calendar! Well, a couple of weeks ago, the calendars came in! It is absolutely beautiful!

I feel very honored and proud to be a part of this calendar. It is the first time I have ever submitted anything to an art magazine and to be chosen as one of the thirteen artists whose work appears in the calendar makes me so happy. If you want to purchase a copy, the calandar's cover links to the magazine's shop, where you can purchase it. The other pic is a detail shot of my piece from the magazine's blog, it links to the post it appeared in.

The theme of the calendar is "Life is Like a Box of...." and my piece is called "Life is like a Box of Wine Corks". It measures 12X12 and is an assemblage done inside an actual box. I had a lot of fun doing this piece, and it turned out to be very meaningful to me, many of the events depicted are from my life.

Also, Cloth Paper Scissors is a great magazine. Lots of great art and fun projects to do. I highly recommend it, it is my favorite magazine.

If anyone sees this calendar for sale anywhere, I would love to hear about it! I've checked every bookstore I have been to lately, as they are beginning to get the 2010 calendars, but I haven't spotted it anywhere!
