My Art Will Be Published!

Well... at least one of the portraits I drew. :)

Rama Hughes sent me a note. The Artist´s Magazine is going to write a story about The Portrait Party and they want to print the portrait I did of Christine and the one she did of me. What a wonderful surprise and boost to my self-esteem. It is my first piece of art which is going to be published. And it was the fourth portrait I ever did in my life. It is still one of my favorites. I need to get a copy of this magazine.

My portrait of Christine Castro (Maganda.org, Darling Design) (original pic) is on the left and on the right you can see her portrait of me (original pic):
"The Artist’s Magazine celebrates the creative life and the creative act, the artist as well as the art, by showcasing the best work—in all media and in all styles—of the best artists working today. With beautiful color reproductions, engaging interviews, lively discussions of timely issues, practical lessons in craft, and news of exhibitions and events, The Artist’s Magazine inspires, informs, encourages and instructs so that an artist’s creative life will be filled with success as well as pleasure."
