Somerset Studio Gallery summer edition. I'm on page 8; a dream come true! Actually I guess two dreams... My art work graces the pages of this lovely publication and I was asked to write a technique based article! Yes, I had to pinch myself and take deep breaths,when asked. When the mail arrived on Saturday, I saw this issue poking out of the stack, my heart started pounding. I slowly turned the pages and was stunned, there was my name and the art I had submitted, last year. Yes, I did a happy dance and then my husband asked me what was going on. I then showed him the publication. See, I had grabbed the mail and sat alone on the deck to process this moment, before sharing. Thank you to Jennifer Jackson n' staff, that put this publication together. Thank you!!! It was a dream come true; my 10 yr old inner child is still smiling and my soul is still dancing! There is so much inspiration in this issue, I look at the table of contents and can't believe my name is among some of my favorite artists! If you have a dream, don't tuck it away...take a few steps towards it, mail your art in, submit that article, mail in that recipe. It can't happen if you don't try... I wanted to submit art years ago, but talked myself out of it. Jennifer Jackson shares this in her Editor's Letter, "The next time you want to challenge yourself, remember to push yourself out of your comfort zone. You just may be surprised at what you might find."
