SEASONS CHANGE- In Pasticcio Quartz 13!

I'm thrilled and honored to have one of my artworks featured in this month's season edition of 
It's the fabulous Art Zine by the amazing and talented artists 

As described in its introduction- "PASTICCIO is a pioneer in the next wave of a dynamic arts publication arena; it's much more than a zine, it has evolved into a QUARTZ: a Quality Art Zine. A veritable treasure trove in an 8.5"x8.5" package of over 70 full color pages of Art and Life..."  It showcases new art from dozens of established and emerging artists, has book and product reviews, advice, stories, interviews, food and movie tips, thoughts, projects and products to try, recipes, word play, vision boards and so much more.

Below is my published artwork titled 
Seasons Change One to Another. 

 Substrate: 6" x 8.5" cut book board 
 Ingredients: Layers and layers of gesso, acrylic paint, sharpie marker, tissue paper, a postage stamp, colored musical notes and a piece of wall paper.
When my artwork was almost complete, I received a card from my dad with this picture. 
I was dumbstruck by how it was almost a clone to the mountains, color palette and visual effects I had just painted --and knew it had to be included  (in addition to the word "love"  written by my dad in the card)
   After much research - I identified the piece
 ( seen above) as a  scene from a poster titled Hyeres by artist Julien Lacaze (1886-1971).  
Below are close up shots  of my artwork showcasing the layers of mountains and 3D effect created on the book board.

With very special thanks to Sarah and Angela

An unparalleled harmony in some one's life.

Such a warm and charming piece you have created with the snow and the sun – and surrounded by your music. And may be a few X´s for earth music – who knows…..?. Fills me with energy! I could tell without knowing it was your creation! Such a wonderful story about the card from your dad - the palm trees are a perfect addition. You got blessed you with one of the things you appreciate so much and make us wonder – synchronicity! But what makes you art work so special and unique, is the words you give us. When I leave they have made me inspired and energetic! Happy holidays to you!!!!

This is just gorgeous Jill and deserved to be published. I can't believe how similar it was to your Dad's postcard - that's amazing - the world works in mysterious ways doesn't it? I believe we're all connected somehow. But again, beautiful work - I love how textural your art is!

Oh Jilly, this IS such wonderful news!!! I love "Pasticcio" and have quite a collection of them on my shelves. And I love your art too, what a beautiful fit they both make together. I love the sun peaking over the mountains, and the red bird on the very top of the tree, and the feeling of "vacation" in your 'Seasons Change..." I wish you a wonderful holiday as well. Love and laughter and many tender moments.
