Over the last week, two friends of mine sent me pictures of my painting "Masquerade of the Owl", published on the upcoming spring issue cover of Rattle magazine.
Special thanks to Alyse Richmond for recommending my artwork, and Tim Green at Rattle for selecting my painting. Also, I'm excited to be chosen by talented author, Alexandra Umlas to create a painting for her upcoming poetry book cover. I am feeling very grateful that the universe presented these opportunities.
There are 3 things I tell myself frequently: You cannot measure your success by comparing yourself to others. Celebrate the small victories just as you would celebrate big victories. One person's failure could be another's greatest achievement.
