Yup, that's my artwork on the cover of the November issue of Minnesota Women's Press! How cool is that?!!!
Norma Smith Olson (co-editor with Kathy Magnuson) and I had a very enjoyable phone conversation and she wrote the Cover Artist article, "Masked and Unmasked." I've been a long-time admirer of this free mag (published for 25 years, originally as a newspaper and more recently evolved into a newsprint magazine with an e-edition as well.) I love the focus on "Changing the Universe through Women's Stories." It's an honor to be included.

There's a certain irony about being on the cover of the issue where the theme is, "showing up." That's always been one of the big challenges in my life. Never knowing quite how to do it, when it's more important to "show up" for myself or for others. Let's just say that sometimes I do it smashingly well and other times, well, you know . . . not so good. Let me also say that I'm working on it!
Like I am now going to work (yet again) on showing up for this blog! I can't believe it's been over a year since I last posted. It's been a year of pretty intense ups and downs. But, hey -- I've got some new artwork to share, some news about my book, and some other musings I don't want to keep to myself.
