My First Article!

The May/June issue of Somerset Studio will be on the news stands this coming Saturday - and - I am proud, and faintly amazed, to say that I have an article therein.

The challenge was the Impressionists and I responded with Monet's Paint Box. Click on the title to read the blog post about how it was made.

After seeing the article, Lynne Perrella said "I love the paintbox. The close-up photography really makes me feel that I can smell the paints, like maybe the artist himself has just left the room." I was pleased that they did very little editing on my writing and that the pictures came out so well. Two things I enjoy immensely are my art and my writing, and it's a wonderful kick to see them both recognized in this way.


  1. Such excellent news...not just the happiness of having art selected, no, the whole article. I am so happy for you and pleased at their editorial wisdom. May it be the first of many.

  2. Wow! Congratulations! That is so great. Might have to pick up a copy or two at work.
