Oh, Glo On!

Red-y for Fall, Sherry West, Cover, Glo Magazine, November, 2020.

Shés here!

Today is the day!

Glo magazine released their latest issue, and my art is on the cover! Glo is a FREE womeńs monthly Ft. Wayne, Indiana publication.

I’ve been wanting to see my art on the cover for the last few years since they started publication. What a thrill!

It was such a treat for me to meet the editors at a home and garden show, and I have quite a few of the past Glo issues in my possession. I just love their magazine and covers.

And now I get to be in it. How awesome is that?

Ím pretty sure Ím Glo-ing.

If yoúd like to color and with this image, here she is! Shés red-y for Fall and Winter! And you can be, too!

Fall Friends


We have lots and lots of cats.

And we’ve got them in every shape, size, pattern and color. Especially Fall colors…which is rather odd. But then again, our cats tend to be rather odd.

My cat is the Mother Ship. She’s a medium long-hair tortoiseshell – snowy white on her bottom half and large gorgeous patches of orange and black on top. We have a big ginger male the boys appropriately named Cheese Puff, a black and orange stripey female, two black kittens, and an adorable black and white kitten who looks like Eddie Munster of the classic Munster’s tv sitcom, plus an odd assortment of other random cats…which all seem to get named after the boy’s favorite foods.

My cat, Queen Sushi.
Eddie (Munster). Thank you, Layne Ihde, for this awesome name! Layne is the cat-dad of a little black cat name Pippin who is the star of his new series of children’s books titled Pippin, No Licken! And Pippin, No Drippin! https://www.layneihde.com

And they LIKE mice, but not in the same way this cat likes mice. Consequently, we don’t (currently) have a mouse problem.

The chickens. Our chickens run the gamut of the fall color palette, too. I’m not quite sure how that happened, but our cats and chickens match.

That presents us with a technical difficulty: Marla. Marla doesn’t match. We either need a new dog, or we need to paint her orange.


I don’t think that would bother the cats one little bit.

Woo-hoo! And I do mean WOO-HOO!

Two years ago, almost to the exact day, I submitted Fall-themed images to a womeńs magazine. And in the following couple of years, Íve submitted others which were not selected. I had honestly given up hope they would ever use anything I submitted to them, but I still kept submitting.

Last month I opened my email inbox to find a most exciting message from the Editor informing me they had selected this image for their November cover! (And they couldn’t get in touch with me and had been trying….OOPS.)

The lesson for today is: NEVER, EVER, NEVER GIVE UP!

(And make sure your inbox is cleaned out regularly so important messages don’t get buried in the daily pile.)

(And always make SURE you DOŃT download the French and Spanish keyboards to your iPad unless you can figure out how to undo them.)
