I am in! I just received word that one/or both of my paintings are in The Geography of Loss: Embrace What Is, Honor What Was, Love What Will Be. By Patti Digh. I sent the submissions in September of 2012. I thought the jury process had long since ended, and just figured I had not been selected.
When I saw the letter in my box, I thought it was an invitation to take part in a new project. I am so happy! And on top of that AMAZING news, I will receive a free copy of the book when it is released in mid-January.
Here is the artwork I created for the themes they supplied. One had to do with maps, and the other was on how we handle loss. I believe this is Patti’s fifth book, and in each of them, she invites artists from around the world to take part in the illustration.
Wishing you all a very Happy weekend – filled with Happy news!
