A little fame

I had a wonderful opportunity to have my art appear in the Country Register, Colorado issue for January. Jan Keller is the publisher, contact her for advertising or subscribing. This is a shopping newspaper published independently around the country and beyond. My pastel painting, "Almost Tea Time" is on the cover and there is an article with more paintings and a photo of me inside. A very nice spread. :) The paper is filled with articles about life, recipes, and fun. It also has ads for shops and more. The paper is distributed at welcome centers and craft and quilting shops.

If you are in Colorado or a nearby border town pick it up free. You can also subscribe for a small charge. You can watch for my work on the May issue in New Mexico. You can see past covers on the web site. Thank you Jan.

That is so cool, Jo!! I hope you'll post the lovely geraniums they may use for the cover on your site - they look great!

Jo Castillo said...

Valerie, Thank you. It was a surprise when I got the call. Fun.

Regina, We will see what is decided. More down the road. Thanks for the support. :)

There is just something about seeing your work in print - makes you feel like a "real artist." Of course you are a real artist, but you know what I mean. Very cool!

Jo Castillo said...

Thanks, bag blog. I think. ;) Really nice of you to stop by, I know you are busy.

Rose Welty said...

Yeah, Jo! I'm so glad to see your work getting some recognition!

Well done.

Joan said...

Jo, What a wonderful opportunity for exposure! Your pastel looks great there!!

Jo Castillo said...

Rose, every little bit helps. :) Thanks.

Jo Castillo said...

Joan, thank you. It was a nice feeling to see the magazine.

I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children.
