Published! and it's a Watercolor Drawing!

I am pleased as punch that my work was accepted into this book by Lesley Riley "Inspirational Quotes Illustrated."  Where to order?  Click here to go to Amazon.  I make art quilts for the wall - it's my main medium.  When this email came across my desk as a call for entry, I decided to do a watercolor instead. I've got to tell you that the book is so amazing, with all kinds of art mediums to fill the pages. It's the book that you want to have in your studio, and on your coffee table at home. And beautifully done, by the way.

Tickled pink that my book is signed by Lesley!  Life just got a little sweeter!  I am just so happy to have my work in this book, with all of the other extremely talented artists who were inspired by the quotes that Lesley gave them.  I admit, it took me about a dozen tries to get the one quote that spoke to me, but in the end it worked!  The pages are perforated, so you can tear them out carefully and frame them on your wall.  How brilliant is that?

Here is how I am listed in the back of the book!  My daughter Jen helped me with the title of my artwork, since it was inspired by her.  She loves the color green.

She had a curious love of green, which in individuals is always the sign of a subtle artistic temperament. Oscar Wilde. Painted with watercolors and green metallic paint. Pitt pen for the black outline. It is so me, and so my daughter.
