I thought the people who get to showcase their art Southwest Mag must be awesome.
Back when I was a closet artist working in a mans world so I could make a mans wage, I secretly longed for the life of an artist. In my quiet times I would flip though the pages of the Southwest magazines I had collected daydreaming of being one of those people. It is interesting to look back and see where some of the seeds of my artistic obsession began.
About 2 months ago I received this e-mail:

They had hooked me for sure. I couldn’t believe that Southwest Magazine was contacting me, ME? ME! Yes my vanity and self promoting instincts kicked in and I took the bait. So if you get a chance pick up the May issue and see my advertisement on page 119.
Not the front page or the featured artist but still I am in a well respected 40 year old national publication.
Hey I’m impressed even if you’re not.
