So I got out the article I had written, and realized that it probably was the same article. I wrote the magazine, and sent them newer photos/paintings, to supplement the article .....but alas, when I found the magazine at Barnes and Noble, while in Phoenix last week, it was basically the original article I had written. I'm not complaining, but it did take me by surprise. I had assumed that they were not going to run the piece.
The article is 8 pages long, the figurative pieces seem a little orange, and they printed two paintings in progress that are almost the same. I thought they would run one of a figurative painting in progress, or a flower painting in progress, but not two white floral paintings in progression.....
I guess the lesson learned is that the magazines will print what they want, so only sent what you really want to see in print.
In the end it is a privilege to be in the magazine, and a wonderful way for people all over the globe to see my paintings! To see the completed pieces, go to my website www.suzysmithart.com .
