I'm published--in Studios magazine

I came home yesterday to find my advance, complimentary copy of Cloth Paper Scissors' Studios magazine had arrived! What a day brightener (certainly needed!) 

I haven't wanted to write about it till it was a sure thing...I guess this makes it a done deal!

A few months ago my best friend, Julie, suggested that I submit photos of my studio to CPS. Actually she did so right here on my blog...and the editor of Studios saw the comment and encouraged me to do so.

Well, my friend and artist, Julie had just finished re-doing her own studio space in her I suggested we both do it! That set off a busy few weeks of picture taking, tweeking pics...and getting them in to the magazine to meet their summer issue deadline (it was more complicated than you might imagine...but fun!)

So this is the result...

We both made it in the issue...Julie's name is at the top of the list of studio vignettes. The picture above is from the Table of Contents page...which also includes one of my pics!

The issue is available in bookstores and art stores May 18th. I've been waiting patiently to see a copy and I'm glad I didn't have to wait any longer! This is a good reminder to me to try new'll never know where they might lead!

Oh, and a number of my art friends (met via the internet) are also featured in this issue...congrats to Kim Geiser, Jodi Ohl, and Pam Carriker!

Thanks Julie for the encouragement! Here's a link to Julie's blog featuring her great work!

Who would have guessed that all those years of painting on kitchen tables, in the corners of bedrooms, in closets or wherever that we would finally have our own spaces! Here's to you my dear friend! Love you, Julie

Wow! How cool to have your studio featured. How cool to have a studio worthy of being featured. :) Mine still needs *tweaking* (ok cleaning)before I'd show anyone. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
