Yes my friends, It's true! Somerset Studio published my work!!  I still can not believe they published me again!  It never sinks in that they like me.  I see it, but don't understand it.  I am my worst critic. The call was for whimsical work.  I made this insane purple tree and almost threw it away!  I thought to myself "you have gone too far with this one!!  Guess I was wrong.

I am page 122.  2 Pieces on one page!  Unreal!!!

Close up of purple tree.  You can see my name on the left with my instructions on how you can make this same piece!  It is really called "Live With Imagination".  THIS piece really is living with imagination!!

This is a close up of "Home". This one I really liked.  It is a backward canvas.  I had fun doodling and painting with pastel colors.

But they put the "Live With Imagination" tree in the table of contents!!  I guess they liked it that much!! Goes to show, just because I think it stinks doesn't mean everyone else will!!  Don't be a chicken.  Let the art do it's job.  Let it make someone happy.  Give it a chance to be special before you toss it out!!!


  1. Wow, congratulations! How exciting to see yourself published, especially multiple times. I'm my own worst critic also! Hmmm, maybe I'll have to submit something somewhere. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. My word too, WOW. I am so proud of you. Why? you just inspire us so much. I guess we all feel the same about our work. I have things hung up and sitting around and someone comes by and loves it and wowwe it is theirs.

  3. Whooo-Hooooo! I don't know WHY you are so surprised! You are VERY talented! Congratulations!!!! xo Diana
