Making It!



Last September I was contacted by Chris Tyrell, the author of Artist Survival Skills. He was writing a new book about successful Canadian Artists and he wanted to interview me. Me!! How awesome is that?
Not only did Chris want to interview me but he wrote a whole chapter on me. So I am Chapter 3 in the book.
The reason why he wanted to interview me was that he was impressed with my blog. Who would have thought that my weekly and biweekly journaling of my painitngs would get me into a book? It is very humbling. I was so nervous when he interviewed me but Chris made me feel at ease and we had much to discuss. As he mentions in the book, we were friends by the end of our conversation.
Chris explains in his book why he chose my blog as an example. I would tell you but you will have to buy the book to find out.
My impression about Making It! was that it was going to be out towards the end of the summer. To my surprise, it came out last week. I went out with some good friends to celebrate. Hope Chris is celebrating as well.
It is available through Opus Framing and Art Supplies.
