I've Been Published!!--sort of

This is a show that is currently up at the Women's Center here in Jacksonville and this was in our Jacksonville Arbus Magazine which is a local art magazine. This piece actually sold and it was exciting to have them use my image in the magazine. Too bad they didn't put my name but---oh well, can't have everything!

Congratulations!! YES- Kim is right: you have been published!

Mary said...

Yes you have!!
I can believe they did not put your name on it either!!!!
They should have put your name on it!!!

Tess said...

Congratulations. Those that know you will recognize your work. In the meantime write a nice thank you letter to the editor and who know's they may print it and there will be your name. Hee Hee! I would so be there if I were in Florida to see your work displayed. I'd love to see the magazine. We don't have a art magazine in our area. Too bad!

Martha, Congratualations!!! And I would classify that as a publishing!

If your work is in print, it is a publishing. Congratulations. So very wrong not to have your name by your work. What were they thinking?

PaperPumpkin said...

You are published!! This is exciting! It's beautiful, but yes, your name should have been on it, totally. Congrats, Martha! celebrate!

Kelly said...

Glad your surgery went well. We know all about that implant stuff, don't we?

Sue K said...

Congrats on your new found fame!! Just teasing you! That is great and a good boost to the ego! You never know, it might send some biz your way. I always have loved your poppy works...you really did so well with them!!!

Jennifer DeDonato said...

I think you should have added your name so people know where to look for the artwork. This counts to be published!!

Have you ever designed scrapbook paper? If so...I think I might have some of yours.

Becca said...

Congratulations, that is a beautiful piece, is it water color? It's a shame they didn't use your name,but like others here have said, I'm sure people will know your work. So nice you live somewhere that has an "art magazine!" We only have a casino/gambling magazine, ha. Thanks for your sweet comment and for following my blog! :)

Butterfly Works said...

Way to go Martha! Congrats on being featured and on the sale of the piece!

Laura said...

That's fabulous, congrats Martha!!! And I would definitely mention their oversight - get your 'credit due' girl! :)

Gina Lee Kim said...

I love your poppies! To me you're more than published. You're Martha!

Gifts of Creation said...

Very awesome! I know even more great things will happen with your art!

Regina said...

Congrats, Martha!

When you sold the art, did you give them rights to publish? That does NOT automatically come with selling your work. If you didn't, you should have been asked for permission and to be given credit.
But so many people don't know this.
So a nice thank you letter to the editor as someone has suggested should be done.... and a request to make an note in the next issue giving you credit.
That's my 2 cents.
