Published - Harvest Magazine

I just received this copy of a new independent literary magazine in the mail today, all the way from Melbourne.

Several months ago I was contacted by the publishers
of this literary magazine from Australia -- they inquired about using
one of my portraits to illustrate a short story for the upcoming
issue of their quarterly magazine.
I submitted a few choices and they selected this one, a portrait I 
painted of a friend of ours from Negril, Jamaica. 

I'd originally posted that portrait here on the blog 
over three years ago, with a story entitled "Heard it Through The
Seagrape Vine." Interestingly enough, it was used to illustrate
a story about a young man living in Brixton in the U.K. 
I was thrilled to see that they used the 4" x 6" image as a
full-page illustration to accompany the story, approximately 8" x 10." I just got
my copy of the magazine in the mail this week.

You can read more about Harvest here.
