I received an offer that was hard to pass. Spirit Seeker magazine asked my permission to publish a part of my festive painting on the cover.

November Issue is colorful and filled with Fall Spirit:
I am glad they chose the part of the painting that contained a pumpkin and Fall leaves. They have the most contrast of all. However, because the cover has vertical format, the whole painting (which is horizontal ) did not fit. My initial artwork was a “play” between realistic and impressionistic art. For example, if the whole still life part was executed in realism, the landscape behind the window is pure Impressionism:
I also like that the magazine mentioned my name as an artist and published a small article about me (on Page 4)
