I am very honored to have been selected to be the featured visual artist for the August 1, 2022 issue of Quill and Parchment online poetry and art journal. I have recently rearranged, updated, and uploaded new acrylic paintings on my paintings page of this website. I hope you will take a look.
If you are interested in purchasing one of the gallery paintings (not all are available for sale), please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve put together a box of photo notecards. To purchase a group of eight note cards printing on card stock with matching envelopes featuring four of the featured paintings, the cost is $40.00 plus a shipping cost of $5.00, for a total of $45.00. Please pay via PayPal to my msn email account: email@example.com. The notecards feature two cards of each of these four paintings: Sunset on Plum Island Marsh, Mariposa Monarca, Near Dusk at Nubble Light, and Swift River in Autumn (images on the paintings page).
If you have questions about the art, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Thank you for your interest in my poetry and my art.
I am grateful to Sharmagne LeLand-St. John, editor in chief, and Michael Escoubas, editor, of the monthly online journal Quill and Parchment www.quillandparchment.com for featuring photos of my acrylic paintings in the issues listed below (the website is open to the public, though editors request those who regularly visit to pay a fee of $12.50 per year):
12.01.20 Mariposa Monarca with accompanying ekphrastic poem of the same name.
01.01.21 Mariposa Monarca along with poems submitted and accepted to be published below the art, published in the ekphrastic poems section of the issue.
07.01.22 Sunset on Plum Island serves as the ekphrastic prompt for the 08.01.22 issue of Quill and Parchment.
08.01.22 As yet unknown by me, a group (8-12 or so) of my paintings that are included on the paintings page of this website, including Sunset on Plum Island (as the ekphrastic prompt) and Merging Sea, Sky, Sand–the last, together with my triolet “Shimmer,” will be included in the August issue.
I feel fortunate to have been selected as the August first featured artist and to also have two of my poems accepted for the issue.
I hope you will enjoy the issue and consider submitting poetry and art in the future.
