American Artist Magazine, July issue is on the stands...

and I'm on page 28, as a runner-up in the cover competition.

I'm packing for France. And trying to figure out if there's any way I can buy a cheap laptop or ipad before I go, so I can blog on the road. I don't know if there's any interest in it, but I'd love to keep a journal. The more I talk about it, the more I'm persuading myself to go get something. I've got a good P.D. James book for the plane and a wonderful little travel bag which is perfect for my bulky camera and important papers. Can you tell I'm getting excited?


  1. Hi, oh how I wish I was going with you! You'll love France... enjoy your visit and giving what I'm sure will amount to incredible art classes... E.

  2. Huge congrats on the recognition in American Artist. It is such a fine painting, Margaret. I'd have chosen it!

    good to see the mag: congratulations. i have just got back from a trip to France. It is wonderful and a laptop but with internet connection is a great idea (also useful to watch dvds as tv is mostly in french... which is great to improve your french). hope you have a wonderful time.

  4. Margaret,
    The IPad is great. I have had the $500 one for a month and use it all the time. No flash, but you can blog, watch movies with Netflix and all those you tubes!!

  5. Have fun!
    I would be excited too!
    Good luck with the computer/netbook/ipad/....

  6. Congratulations! Extremely exciting to be heading to Paris...with or without an IPAD. Safe travels and all eyes on the city of light! :-)
