I need to brag...






My friend Fred is an amazing, gifted artist. You can see his work HERE. I have always felt a little like I know a celebrity since whenever I go to the grocery store I see his artwork on packages of flatbread Fred is a retired graphic artist and incredibly talented. Now it seems, he is becoming internationally famous as well...

He is featured in the current issue of Corel Painter magazine (Issue 18). The magazine is printed in England and the USA market is always a month behind the issues sold in the UK and Europe. The magazine is available at Barnes and Noble and Borders bookstores, and perhaps at other magazine retailers, if you would like to drop in and take a peek.

He also has a featured gallery at the official Corel Painter Magazine Website. Fred- I once again stand in awe of your talent. Thank you so much for sharing!!! Your work is just amazing and you so very much deserve this honor!

I wonder how much Fred will charge to do the cover art on your book? ;)

DaisyBug said...

Yes it is, Marvin... Froggy - is that a hint, LOL?!

OMG! (Blush, blush.) This has been so much fun and I've received so many comments on this article in email and in person. Thanks for publishing this in your blog, Daisy.

My granddaughter, who lives in Florida, is taking art classes from a lady who recently came to FL from England. The art teacher mentioned Corel Painter magazine and Hannah said, "My 'Pa' is in it!"

The teacher said, "Oh, your grandpa subscribes to the magazine?"

Hannah said, "No. I mean he is IN it!"

I thought that was funny. Now the teacher wants to meet me when I am down there for my next visit in the Fall.

Frog: I hope Daisy knows if she wants something from me, all she has to do is ask.

DaisyBug said...

Oh yes, Fred - I do know that, LOL... Froggy has it in his head that I will write a book someday which is rather funny, IMO - but I guess you never really know, do you?! And you, Fred, deserve every single bit of adulation that comes your way - your talent, your gift is just amazing and I am thrilled that you are getting serious recognition! :) Love that the teacher wants to meet you too!
