ART JOURNALING magazine WINTER 2012
Stampington's Art Journaling magazine was, a dream on my "vision board" last year. Here i am again, in this beautiful article they called "A Life of Art"……..pitter patter, dreams come true, breathe….sigh!!!! It never ever gets old seeing your name and art in print.Create Mixed Media retreats in California in May and New Jersey in July. You can join us in person!!!
My artwork was printed perfectly, accurate color tones and byline, yay!!***SCOOP ALERT*** Now, in each issue, they ask a few of the featured artists about their process and techniques. It's always brilliant! I was reading the text under my name on four of the topic pages, and thought, "hmmmm, i said that? Doesn't sound like anything I WOULD SAY??!". I was a little freaked out about it. Especially that it said that i had no formal training (and i spent a fortune on my art education degree) AND that "lettering was the bane of my existence"(and i pretty much have based my career on my lettering!)
I contacted my very kind and gracious editor and she acknowledged the printing error. She'll be noting the correction in the next issue.
A few days later, i got an email from Donna Mulholland, the extremely talented, whimsical watercolorist and yoga guru from Canada. She informs me that the responses in the issue under my name are HER RESPONSES!!! Mystery solved! We had a nice chat and a good laugh, and know that "stuff happens". That's how we make new art friends.
So, when you are reading the issue, know that the text in these "Ask the Artist" pages identified as JOANNE SHARPE, really belong to Donna Mulholland. Check out her blog, she has such a wonderful painting and journaling style. She also blogged about this experience today.
…."lettering was once the bane of my existence"…DONNA MULHOLLAND
I'll say it again, it really is an HONOR to be featured in such beautiful publications that celebrate the talent of so many wonderful art souls.
Thank you Stampington, for including me, appreciating my art
and making this journey a great adventure with you!
