Published in May/June Somerset Studio

I am so excited that this piece was published! It is called ‘A Silver Ring’ and was done for my husband. His Uncle Rudy was a flight engineer in WWII and his plane was shot down. This collage, was done using beeswax and incorporates an image of the bomber he flew in, his medals, a faded picture of his squadron, and an imprint of the silver flight ring that he wore and that now adorns my husbands finger. My hubby has worn the ring since he became a pilot and has long revered the uncle he never knew. He is 100,000 words into a novel loosely based on his uncle and having this piece published means a lot to me as I made it as a gift for him. The only slight bummer, is that there is a misprint and they gave another artist credit. I called the publisher and they will be printing a correction in the next issue. I guess this happens once in awhile. It is still a joy to see it in print and I can’t wait to show my hubby! The picture to the right was taken with my camera and not too good, kinda washed out, but you can at least get an idea of what it looks like. The magazine image looks really nice.

  1. Whoo Hoo Pam!! Boo Hoo Somerset! Misprints do happen but I agree with you, it’s a bummer. But this is a beautiful work of art and I know your hubby had to be SO proud!!! And he’s writing a book! How cool is that?! I know it’s not easy. Many years ago (to many to count) I spent a long time thinking I wanted to be a novelist. These days I just enjoy reading them. ;-)Hugs my famous friendGail

  2. Congrats! Bummer about the wrong artist credit. I’ve photocopied the work I’ve had in magazines onto heavy cardstock and would have been devastated if someone else was credited with my work.
