Some people ask me why I do a newsletter. Why do it when I feature other artists? What could I possibly gain from doing this?
Well, other than the altruistic "playing forward" and knowing that someone somewhere is sharing my work, it just seems like the best thing to do. In addition, if you really love art, do you want to save it, hidden away like a family jewel? Or do you want to show it to the world.
My gain is learning from others, their stories, and their techniques, styles, an message. That message for me is killer. I find it the hardest thing to do, and yet others seem to be able to roll it off their tongue. All I can muster is the greying tagline of past Miss America candidates - "My fondest wish is for world peace!" while adjusting my Miss Congeniality crown.
So the newsletter gets done on a monthly bases. If any of you are interested in signing up for a feature, just shoot me some pics and a bit of a bio. Here is an example of one that I will be posting this month. Let me know what you think!
