Lamp Light-SOLD


I'm stoked to announce that i've been juried into the Daily Painter Gallery, the internets premier daily painter gallery. DPG (as its known) is heavily marketed by Micah Condon, the sites creator. with over a million hits to the site a year, and ads in such magazines as American Art Collector, i'm tickled to be juried into the gallery. Micah said around 50 applied to get in, and the galleries artists juried in 19, saying they liked my paintings and the written content of my blog.

i'm honored to show and sell my work with some of the best daily painters in the country, and i'm looking forward to the increased exposure a million viewers a year, from all over the world, will give me.

might make me a dollar or two and i can have more weenies in my beenies LOL

Mike - congratulations on this very exciting opportunity.
First, to get your work out to more people and second, for the recognition that you so deserve.

Your work stands out, has a distinctive touch to it and the additional traffic is a big plus.

Glad that after some road bumps, you've now got something to bask in.

I really like these cozy interior studies you've been doing.
