I've had a cyber interview by a young British artist and now it's up on her website. It was really interesting to answer someone else's questions, instead of my usual PR hack way of writing stories and news releases. It was refreshing, it was fun, go on, read it!
The interview with 1st Angel and Friends is now up at her website:
Rejections and Acceptance.....
Artists of all stripes ( media) know the heartbreak of rejection. If you're a performer and you didn't get the part after the audition or if you're a visual artist who submits work and doesn't make the cut, you know what I'm talking about. Sure, they should repeat that life isn't fair more often and maybe we'd get used to it. Probably not.
But then when you make the cut, O the Joy! I finally have some joy (in that respect) to report. My work has been juried into the American Art Collector annual book that's sent around to galleries and museums, etc. The book is supposed to be published this fall and it makes up for the five other competitions that I entered that I didn't get into.

Yep, Waiting for the Muse is joining the Sacramento-based Blog Blast for Peace! Please join me!
Welcome to BlogBlast For Peace - The Fourth Launch! Dona Nobis Pacem is Latin for "Grant Us Peace". The Peace Globe project began in the fall of 2006 with a simple post from this blog. The post ignited a flame in the blogosphere. The flame became a passion. The passion became a movement. It amazingly traveled from blog to blog across the globe until it reached 35 countries and 46 states. BlogBlast for Peace is a semi-annual blog event. It happened on my blog. It happened on your blog. It happened all over the world. It is positively inspiring to watch. The simplicity of three Latin words on a globe and bloggers writing amazing articles on what peace means to them. Simple. And powerful. On June 4, 2008 bloggers from all across the globe will blog for peace. We will speak with one voice. One subject. One day.

Meme it (said the Queen of Memes) from your own blog. Copy this post and throw out a challenge to those on your blogroll. The last time I did that, amazing things happened. There's something about this project that has a life of its own.

Speaking of derivatives, here's two of my experiments with more mucking while going from raw to tiff files.Above is Lotus 2 and the below is Lotus 6 We can even pretend we're on a radio station, because I'll give away a 5 x 7 print of either one of these to the 6th person who emails me via this blog! And if you see either of these being used by any corporate card makers, let me know so I can send in the sharks, I mean attorneys!
