How often do we think: Oh, I need to remember that! or: Gosh! I had this idea a while ago, why I didn’t write it down?! or: Man! It is hard to explain in words; but I can draw a sketch how I visualize this project. And wouldn’t be it wonderful to keep all ideas in one specific place rather than in your head or any electronic device?! 
For me it turned out that I’d rather write and doodle on a paper than trust an electronic device with my creative ideas. 
Some people like to write, others like to scribble. I like to do both. It helps me to think when I doodle, sketch my thoughts.
I made a mental note one day when discussing my business plan with an artist friend. When the conversation was over, I rushed to the notebook to write my idea, and then I started drawing right on the edges of the same page. While doing so, I realized that page was not enough and I moved to another page to finish sketching. Later on, when I returned to my doodles, it was hard to find which sketch belonged to which idea. A usual artistic mess, I thought! I’ll get back to it later. But it never happened. Then, I started placing carefully my thoughts and my visual “thoughts” on one spread of the notebook and realized it was much more convenient planning. 
Wow, how simple! 
Any creative person might benefit from such type of journal. Why don’t I make it into an Artful Planner. And I did.
I published my new designs on Amazon for people around the world to enjoy and take action. It helped me, it will certainly help other people to keep their diaries, plans, thoughts, and visual pictures in one place.

My Little Apple got a Big honor to be published in PEOPLE magazine online. 
This miniaute painting,
An Apple, was a part of the series

Vitamins. 
I am glad it was chosen by a lifestyle editor of People magazine 
to accompany an
article about 
decorative design and home décor ideas


Apple berries lemon orange pomegranate
I guess Z Vitamins are not only good for our health, but for an artist’s promotion as well.

November Issue
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. 

With headquarters located in St. Louis, MO; 
“Spirit Seeker Magazine is a comprehensive, inspirational, holistic publication for the mind, body and spirit. In its’ 17th year, the magazine is recognized for its’ rich content and thought-provoking features, consistently showcasing the work of cutting edge authors, musicians and leaders in health, wellness, and spirituality.

Spirit Seeker Magazine has always been ahead of the curve, providing a tool for optimized living and enlightenment. Spirit Seeker Magazine is distributed widely throughout the Midwest as a print publication in Chicago, Kansas City, St. Louis, throughout Missouri, as well as published online, with national and international readers. Each issue is highly anticipated by both faithful and curious readers. Our readers are educated, spiritual consumers seeking information on products, services, and classes.”
(quote from www.spiritseekermagazine.com )

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)
