Tonight I attended the "reading" of the next issue of The Birmingham Arts Journal. One of my sushi paintings is on page 20! I got to talk a little bit about myself and the painting. There were several people there who had short stories or poems in the journal as well, and each one either read their piece or at least a little part of it. I was the only "artist" present at the reading. Afterwards, two people asked me to autograph their copies!!!! I pretended not to be in shock!!!
