Thirty Minutes of Fame

My 15 minutes of fame has grown to 30. My painting, Garden Ladies, was used for the cover of the New Mexico Country Register for the May-June issue. That is so wonderful.



Garden Ladies
Oil, 12 x 16 inches


My painting, Almost Tea Time, was used on the Colorado Country Register in January-February. You can read my post here and see the first painting. As I mentioned before, 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 free of charge. You can contact Jan Keller, publisher, regarding the newspaper.

You can see past covers on the website. You can pick up a copy around the state in New Mexico this month and June. Thank you Jan for helping artists and your hard work for your readers.
