Hey, I got a mention in the Artbizcoach.com newsletter, my painting 'Harvest' features - the article can be viewed on their site at:-

ArtBiz Coach is a really cool site for artists, with helpful tips and business advice, a very motivational site run by Alyson Stanfield - a little bit about her work:-

"This is the greatest job ever! I completely enjoyed my ten years working in art museums, but this is way cooler.
I began consulting with artists informally fifteen years ago as part of my position as a museum curator. When I left museums, my old artist-friends continued coming to me for help and advice. Everyone wanted an agent! A little research into that field led me to conclude that I wouldn't be doing artists any favors by doing all of the work for them. Instead, I decided to teach them how. You know the Chinese proverb: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
I guess that's what I enjoy doing most—Teaching artists to fish!
The neat thing is that almost everything I teach artists to do, I'm doing myself for my business. See? The art business isn't so different from the rest of the world. We all need to know how to promote ourselves and our businesses—online and off. To that end, I keep up with marketing, business, and artworld goings-on."
