A glimpse into my life...
So this week I received this email..."Congratulations! Your artwork has been chosen as a finalist in American Artist magazine’s 2010 cover art competition. Your painting, Little Dancer, along with information about you and your working process, will appear in the July issue of the magazine..."
Wonderful! All I needed to do was send them a 300ppi 11 inch image for publication. But wait...was it this one, named "Little Dancer" or this one named "Little Dancer?"
Or this one named "Little Dancer?"
So I've spent the last 3 days frantically trying to find documentation of which image I may have submitted to the competition. Nothing. Nowhere. Nada. A frantic email to the publication. A frantic phone call to the person who made the initial contact. A CD sent with all the images and a note. Finally someone called and emailed me the correct image. It was the first one. A little 5x7 which was purchased from my blog and ebay link a while back. So, if the current owner is reading this, keep your eye out, I'll post how this thing turns out.
A note to the current owner: The publication doesn't need the original piece of work. They will use my digital files. So enjoy your little dancer.
A note to me: Don't use the same title for different pieces.
A note to the rest of you: It is very difficult naming all this stuff.
