an art update, and a visit to UGallery

I said goodbye to two paintings this month:

Set the Fire (to the Third Bar)

and

Second Chances

These were favorites (and Second Chances was probably no. 1) so I was so pleased that someone loved the two of them enough to purchase them. What a compliment.

They were sold via UGallery, who make the whole process really easy. The staff at UGallery are just awesome – I got a chance to meet them last month when Keith and I went to San Francisco for a wedding. Check out their post about our visit!

I’ve posted two new paintings to UGallery so make sure to check them out below, as well as all the new artwork available on this great site.

Celestial I, 14″ x 11″, mixed media on canvas, 2012

and

Celestial II, 9″ x 12″, mixed media on canvas, 2012

Let me know if you like these new paintings!

Second Chances is UGallery’s Daily Deal

My painting, Second Chances, is today’s Daily Deal at UGallery!

In the market for a new painting, perhaps? 🙂

Also, I’ve kissed two paintings goodbye recently thanks to UGallery. I said goodbye to Dandelions at Dawn:

Dandelions at Dawn, acrylic on canvas, 24″ x 20″

And, Untitled No. 6 found a new home as well. This one was extra special – my good friend Mona claimed it for her own!

View all of my artwork on my website. And, take some time to view the great artists at UGallery. (My paintings at UGallery can be found here.)

A HUGE thanks to all who support my painting endeavors!

Some Military Dance Moves

Guess what? There are pretty much no days off when you are serving overseas in the military. Nope, not really. It is physically exhausting and mentally challenging. Finding downtime isn’t easy. And just because someone is serving overseas doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to step away from the stress for a minute and show off their dance moves.

Thanks to Eric Raum for taking his day off to give a little morale boost to Marines and soldiers, and to give us a way to cheer them on.

PS – Don’t forget to check out Eric’s website for beautiful video and photography, and get the story on how he came to create this video.
