- Sept 09 - I am pleased to report that my paintings have been published in Collection and Appreciation (PDF) Magazine in China, and Chinese Watercolor Quarterly (PDF). My new e-mail friend Zhou Tianya is responsible for making this happen and I want to thank him for his efforts. Tianya is a wonderful watercolorist and won First Place in this year’s International Show of the Watercolor Society of Houston.
- Nov 2010 Article: Southwest Art Magazine - Catching the Light "..McCracken’s long career in architecture and marketing gave him much more than a chance to experience original art around the world. It honed his already detail-oriented mind, trained him in drafting and photography, and was responsible for taking him to a place where he met the perfect watercolor instructor."
- I am the featured artist on this month’s (September ’09) web site for Trekell Brushes, http://www.trekell.com/Featured-Artist_ep_41.html.
- American Art Collector magazine will include my painting Silver & Crystal with Magnolia in its March 2009 story about Still Life Painting, www.americanartcollector.com.
