I had an interesting start to the year…I was pictured in a national magazine in January,Sunshine Artist!  The maps look great in the picture but they captioned it with the wrong name!  The Jim Custer show director Cheryl Branz called to give me the good news and bad news…and said she’d save me a place in the spring show! We are both hoping for a reprint in the March publication.  I am still secretly amazed and this is Super special to me…I hold it dear in the pockets of my heart (you know, the places where you keep pebbles and feathers and fairy dust.)                                                                 
Mom and I had a special time at the Minneapolis Marketplace at the end of January.  I’m very lucky to have such a supportive and talented mom.  We may not attend any more big shows, but we did interest a Rep to take our products to other markets.  As much as I love to go to art shows there aren’t enough of me to go around to attend as many as I’d like to! I welcome wholesale orders so the maps can be celebrated around the country.

My maps and I will be challenged by all the juried shows we’ve been accepted this year.  I have an impressive pile up the next 10 months.  Please send me your good mojo for safe travels since my shows will include Wisconsin, Utah, and the big city.

Warmest wishes for the greatest success on your journeys,

Books and notecards available for the map, steamboat, and railroad fan too!  Please visit our mothership www.greatriver.com for ideas!
