WHAT'S BLACK AND WHITE AND READ ALL OVER?

The latest Palette Magazine arrived today and I was very excited and honored to see this image as part of issue on Black and White paintings.  I had submitted it after seeing the call for paintings in the last issue.  I sent a few different images but never heard back if they were accepted or not.  According to the magazine, they were swamped with submissions, so I was lucky to be selected.  This is such a great magazine, I hope all of you subscribe.  You can find it on Cheap Joe's website.  The magazine always talks about design concepts instead of how-to's.  This issue is on working with intensity to create mood.  I just finished teaching two workshops last month and we covered this idea when we dealt with color as an element.  I could have used this issue as excellent examples.  I need to put it with my teaching materials.

Went to a life drawing session tonight.  I was much less tired than last time and sat in a low chair with a back.  It made a huge difference.  No back pain and I enjoyed the evening.  Check out my blog "Drawn from Limb to Limb" for details.

Hi Myrna, Congratulations! I received my copy of Palette yesterday and there you were! The painting looks great. I enjoyed doing a quick scan at your life drawings. The oil pastel works well with the washes; I'm going to have to look a little harder!

Very cool, Myrna. You might make me want to renew my subscription to Palette magazine.

What a banner year you are already having ... Three "best of" blogs, great workshops [I can attest to that], good shows, and now Palette Magazine ... All well deserved. You get back what you give! Can't wait to pick up my mail and see the new Palette.

Hi Rhonda, Thanks for commenting. Every serious artist should have a subscription to that magazine. It makes us focus on design and personal expression.
