Seriously! I had a photo of me in my studio appear in two newspapers accompanying articles about the Culture Crawl, and a whole article written about me in another one. It seems that the media like that photo, as they all chose the same one.
This all came about because when the Culture Crawl team gave artist participants the option to submit a media package, and I decided I should do it. Even though I truly did not expect anything to result from it. But then — it did! This was all very unexpected. A pleasant surprise. At least one person made the trip down to see me as a result of seeing one of the articles. Fun!
I am soaking it up, because it might never happen again! Savour the attention. Maybe a few more people will come see and enjoy my paintings.
Gyasi Bourne, my biggest fan, took the winning shot. Thanks G.
