American Veterinary Medical Association

Le Coq du Village Chosen for Cover

The American Veterinary Medical Association has chosen one of my roosters to adorn the cover of the February 15, 2010 Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. The Journal is published twice a month and has a circulation of over 78,000. On the masthead page of each issue, they have a feature called “About the Cover” in which they identify the title of the artwork, artist, and a short story of the artist and painting.

Dr. Kathy Swift, of Cow art And More features my cows and rooster art for sale on her blog. She is the person who is completely responsible for submitting my work for consideration by the American Veterinary Medical Association for the cover of their Journal.

My cousin is a veterinarian in Massachusetts, I told him about my art being featured on the cover of the Journal and he told me that he is consistently impressed by the quality of art that adorns the cover and that to have been chosen for it is quite an honor.

I know most of us do not have access to this publication, I just wanted to share with you. And also to remind artists that you just never know where opportunity will lie for promoting your art. Meeting new people and talking about your art is how you make connections and create opportunities for yourself, you never know where life will take you!


  1. Elizabeth,

    You are so deserving of this recognition! It will look beautiful on the cover and I can't wait to see it in my mailbox.

  2. I agree completely. They are lucky to have your work for their cover, too!

  3. I am SO happy for you. What a wonderful recognition of the quality of your work. It does pay to keep talking about what you do, to everyone you meet because you never know who's looking for something that you can provide.

  4. i have been following your pages for a long time.....i love your work. congratulations, over and over..........i would love to see the cover........eva

  5. What a wonderful Christmas present --- congratulations, Elizabeth!

  6. Thanks for all the positive compliments! Jo is right, it does pay to keep talking about what you do, you just never know who you will meet. Kathy found Robin's cow artwork online (Because Robin is amazing with social media!) and Robin suggested that Kathy might also like my artwork. And it was Kathy who submitted me (and her other Cow Art and More artists) for consideration. What a wonderful example of people working together to help one and other! Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Clause....

  7. Congratulations, Elizabeth. Your star is still rising! What a way to end the year.
