Published in Somerset Studio, March 2012

Surprised and delighted to have a piece of my mixed-media artwork featured in the new Somerset Studio.

I originally made a mixed-media piece titled “Dancer in White” back in September of last year.  I enjoyed showing the process photos of how it all came together.

I didn’t have any plans for it until my encouraging friend, Ellen, suggested I add a quote to it and submit it for the quote challenge.  Thanks, Ellen!

Here was the original:

Before I mailed it in, I cleaned up the background, added a castle, and added a quote.  Then I stuck on lots of diamonds.

Here’s what the ‘spiffed up’ piece looked like:

This was a welcome treat to come home to, especially after we’d had such a rough time in the hospital.

I can’t wait to sit down and look through it, there are always so many incredible artists and techniques showcased in this magazine. And check out the cool artist papers included in this issue! I love these!

Hope you’re having a great week so far~

We’re happy to be home, of course…Knox now has an ear infection and blisters have now moved to his hands but, overall, things are better and he’s begun to drink and eat a little on his own.

There’s no place like home.
