I was so excited a few months ago, when I was contacted by Staci Dumoski, the Managing Editor of Artful Blogging, and told the publication would like to include my artwork on their "Banners We Love" page.
It's especially nice, because the banner is a triptych that I created several years ago, with oil crayon bird and baby in optical loop, to honor my daughter, Alexandria. She is my 'right arm' with the blog, and it's as much her honor as mine.
And, when I was told the banner would appear in the Spring issue and that it would be out in early February, I couldn't believe the timing...
This has to be one of my favorite birthday 'gifts' ever!
