Aspen Painting sold from Magazine!
American Art Collector is a magazine known for providing collectors with the hottest new trends in the market. It contains articles that emphasize mainstream art by today's favorite living artists and provides collectors with a pulse of what galleries are showing nationwide each month. It's a fantastic publication and I've advertised frequently with them. Just this past month, I received a call from a collector who had seen one of my paintings in February's issue. He had just received the magazine in the mail that very morning, and my painting, "Morning Stroll" caught his eye. It was the perfect piece for his mantel. He called to inquire how he could purchase the piece. I was pleasantly surprised. It's not often you sell a painting straight out of a magazine--sight unseen! I arranged for the painting to be shipped straight to his home that very week. The client had a big Super Bowl party coming up, and he was hoping he could get the painting in time. It all worked out and these are the pictures he sent me back after he received the piece. Wow! It really does look fantastic in that spot. The next month, this picture appeared in the "Sold!" section of the magazine.

Happy Valentine's Day!
I found this picture while looking for a photo to bring to a Valentine's Day party. My dear art collectors, Jeff and Pat Skoglind, hosted a Valentine's Party at their home in Scottsdale. They asked each of their guests to bring with them a dating or wedding photo. I can safely say we were the only ones with a picture of our first date! It was a fabulous party. Most of the guests were very familiar with Celebrations of Fine Art (lots of art collectors in this bunch!)...and promised to stop by my booth to see my paintings in person.

Aspen Confetti ships to Florida!
I love how great my "Aspen Confetti" (48" x 72") looks on this wall! The moment Jessica saw this piece, she knew it was perfect. This is the email she just sent me along with the above pic:
Here is our beautiful painting and our greyhound, Intensity agrees.
Thanks for everything.
Jon and Jessica
