OMG! Cover Artist!
... Now bring out the smelling salts and pinch me!!
OMG. I couldn't believe that when I saw my art on the cover of The Country Register (MN edition, January/February 2013)! Oh boy. My snowmen (big smile here).
Now, after all of the oohing and aahing, OMGs and such, I'm supposed to write something with a certain sense about this! LOL But... I do feel so honored, grateful and overwhelmed that I have no words!
And have you noticed that I'm side by side with Susan Branch? My heart skipped more than one beat when I saw that. I adore Susan, she's one of my mentors, I even have her picture (together with Marjolein's and Mary's) in my Illustrated Discovery Journal! Years ago, she made me discover I really, really wanted to become a professional artist and illustrator! The fun thing is that the very night before I even knew about this magazine feature, I grabbed all of my courage and wrote her, about how she had inspired me to find my way. I just love, love this syncronicity. Don't you?
As you may easily understand, I have no more words. Let me lose myself in this moment of tender awareness, sweet joy and deep thankfulness.
