I just have to share my news with you.
I’ve known for some weeks now that one of my paintings was going to be printed in a quarterly literary journal – because the editor asked for permission.
Well, at 3:29 pm PST Friday, January 8, 2010, I received the following email:
Thank you again for the use of your watercolor. It’s lovely and has already received compliments. Below is a link to the journal. Just click on the River Poets Quarterly Autumn 2009 pdf file. The painting and poem is on Page 11. http://www.riverpoetsjournal.com/RiverPoetsJournal-Links.html
Warm Regards, Judith Lawrence
The best part – this came right out of the blue. I had no previous connection to the River Poets Quarterly Journal, or to the editor, Judith Lawrence, nor did I make a submission. I had posted the image with my article Last Rose of Desire which is now posted on Creative Potager as “The Crone’s Passion” (I must ask how she discovered the painting.)
So please, choose your beverage of choice and celebrate with me. Raising glasses high, smiling and giggling… “To creativity!”
Sprout Question: If you were to receive a surprise request for permission to publish your work, who do you want it to be from?
