  1. Dear Editor Trippi,
    I started my subscription yesterday, speaking with a wonderful woman who assisted me greatly and that my official subscription would be with the March/April 2019 issue.
    I wanted to find out if it is possible to download, or email me an article on Mark Maggiori whom was in the October 2018 issue please? We have become friends. His talent is just now beginning to get where those high dollars in auctions are really worth it. He has come up very quickly and having many Instant Messages, etc., we talk about his work and his personal life. He is truly a very interesting soul whom I think will take the Best of Show for the Masters of the American West this week. His coloration, detail, emotion, is coming through unlike the ones he began with. He has intrigued me because he has lived a life that romance novels are created by. However, every piece does not need to repeat the basic story. It, to me, is time to start focusing on where he wants to go, how does he see his art in the next 5 years? Being a Frenchman, he spends his time back and forth as he has two daughters, Scarlet and Shalom with ex-wife Juliette, works on his heart. We have been inundated with the romance of Petecia, we need to focus on the art. Yes, it’s nice to know about what makes an artist an artist, but it’s time now to take the rough heavy metal rock star and develop his work. So, if you could forward that to me, I would appreciate it greatly. I am so looking forward to getting the magazine.
