Fine Artist, Lucy DickensPRESS RELEASE


Fine Artist, Lucy Dickens has just received her first, but certainly not her last, Magazine Cover Editorial! EMG Publications who are the publisher’s of Scottsdale Lifestyle, East Valley Lifestyle, Mesa Living, Gilbert Living and Gold Canyon Leisure Lifestyle Magazines, have selected celebrated Arizona Oil Painter, LUCY DICKENS for the April Cover and inside editorial.
They will be featuring Dickens’ recent excursion to Italy and the glorious paintings that followed. Chosen for the coveted cover was oil painting, “Passion”, which features one of the most beautiful sites in the Tuscan region of Italy. The landscape shows a field glowing in vibrant red poppies as far as the eyes can see. A quaint, Tuscan farm house rests on a hill over-seeing this crimson ocean.
The editorial also features three additional paintings which act as constant windows to a perennial place and time. “We are very excited to have Lucy’s wonderful paintings displayed in our magazines! Her work is fabulous and we’re sure our 73,000 readers will agree.” Vicki Yontz, editor. So “congratulations” to Lucy! I’m certain this is the first and many more to come”. Karen Howell, Fine Art Director.
