From the gallery's website:
Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art is a traditional gallery featuring nationally and internationally recognized artists, many featured in fine museums and prestigious collections. As one of the most respected galleries in the United States, Greenhouse Gallery has combined traditional art experience with the expansion to a 12,000 square feet location to create one of the largest retail fine art galleries in the country.

While being interviewed over the phone recently for an upcoming feature in SouthwestArt magazine, I suddenly found myself bemused and perplexed at my inability to intelligently answer a question posed by the woman on the other end of the line. It was a seemingly simple but very specific question that, although requiring an immediate answer, was not altogether uncomplicated in its design to produce what I felt should be a profound statement from me. While I admit that I thought a clever answer would never come to mind, at my earnest request I was graciously given some time to brood over the elusive inquiry and then get back to her.
The question: “What about your work do you feel is most interesting?”

Anyone can do what it takes to improve their artistic and marketing skills, but not everyone will. All the more reason for you to get out there! When we become believers in what we do, others will be converted – they too will begin believing in the quality and significance of our work, and the sales will come! . . .

"So, a friend of mine finds a strange looking egg while taking one of his daily walks not long ago. After viewing the egg down at his feet - and wondering how it escaped it's nest and landed right in the middle of the trail he frequented - he came to the conclusion that it was an abandoned duck egg; and of course being the animal lover that he is, decided to make an attempt at hatching the egg by placing it in a nest located in one of the many chicken coops that sit on his vast property. . . ."

10" x 20" Oil on linen
A new favorite painting of mine that has become dear to my heart.
Some will see flowers; some a teacup; and some a well thought out composition; But as for me, I see the hearts of generous friends - and I feel truly blessed. :)

One of the many ways that those who are a crucial part of the "Art World" today show their appreciation for [and recognition of] contributions made to the production, development, and furthering of art, is by promoting an artist's work [deemed worthy of such affections] through one or more of their many publications.
That being said, I am very excited, and completely honored to be sharing with each of you the following good news:
A detail portion of my recent painting, "Tea ", will be gracing the cover of the July/August 2009 issue of American Artist magazine!
After many hours spent developing a for this particular issue, the outcome is, in the words of one member of the American Artist's staff...
"One of the finest covers I have ever seen on our magazine in the years that I've worked here."
Please, be sure and get your copy of the July/August 2009 issue of American Artist magazine, on sale June 2ND!
Along with the cover photo is a feature article written by the magazines own Editor in Chief, Steve Doherty, containing full color photos of many of my most recent works.

These are some of the last remaining narcissus blooms that were in my garden. I just had to immortalize them in a painting. -Daniel
