Art and Love from Me to You

On the Cover of Natural Awakenings!

This is so exciting!  My artwork is on the covers in select markets of  Natural Awakenings Magazine!  You might find it in your local health food store or Whole Foods.  The publisher is sending me a handful of copies and I can’t wait to see it in person.  If you click on the link you can open it up full-screen.  Page 29 has a sweet little write up about the cover artist.

I looked at a few back issues that have Dr. Oz, Andrew Weil, Seane Corne, and Mariel Hemmingway on the cover.  Seriously, what an honor.  Sharon Bruckman, the CEO of the magazine said, “We love to spread light.  We rejoice that our readers take responsibility for their own health and well-being. Our magazines speak to them.”  I love that.

    We have a few copies here at our house! It’s just lovely. We picked them up this past weekend when we were out and about. I regularly read it and when I saw your art on the cover, I said to my husband “Whoa- it’s Lori Portka!” It was a cool little connection moment for me (a magazine I read “in real life” and an artist I admire online!)

    Absolutely love the cover! When might a print of that be available for purchase. I would really love it for my studio to keep me focused.

      Ahem. Never mind. I found it, and I got it! Thank you.

    Oh, Lori! Lori! This is so totally exciting! Spreading happiness through art…yep, that’s what you’re doing and doing and doing.

    You’re amazing.

    With love,
