Art Licensing Show Celebrates One Year Anniversary

I joined the Art Licensing Show a year ago. It has definitely been a positive experience! With so many options/pricing plans for membership, there is something to fit in every artist's budget. Art directors can join at no cost. Now it's time to celebrate their ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

This is my banner header on my home page on the Art Licensing Show.

I can feature certain collections on my homepage, edit and add new
art at any time. If you are an art director and a current member, my art portfolio can be viewed at

The Art Licensing Show was founded by artist, designer and creative entrepreneur Cherish Flieder. She is one of the hardest working artists I know, not to mention one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. 

Here's a little info about the Art Licensing Show: is a permission based, virtual portal where artwork can be reviewed privately by Art Directors who are looking to commercially license artwork. Authorized Art Directors may request to see art from a wide assortment of participating Artists and Licensors and highlight favorite art pieces, all with a single login.
It is an online directory where art licensing companies and professionals in supporting roles can be be listed and found with a simple search by name, keywords, subject and genre.
Lastly, it's a a social gathering where industry professionals can network and connect with one another in groups, site updates, and via direct messaging to advance their goals.

It's certainly work taking a peek at the website if you're an artist wanting to get your work in front of a variety of art directors and design companies.

I'm wishing Cherish and the Art Licensing Show continued success for many more years to come!

"My Artistic Journey - A Memorable Experience at the Pentagon"

A career as an artist can be an "INTERESTING" journey to say the least. I have quite a list of obscure and unusual things I've painted as well as opportunities that have been quite memorable!

Recently I was looking through some old photos and came across a fond memory of one of those memorable opportunities that took place at the Pentagon!

I was fortunate to participate as one of the instructors in the "Take Your Kids to Work Day" at the Pentagon. At the time I was an artist/ambassador for Plaid Enterprises and was beyond excited to have the honor to do this!

Military personnel as well as all employees at the Pentagon brought their children to celebrate the event.  On a chilly April morning over 600 hundred children attended and created a variety crafty projects in the Pentagon Courtyard. Numerous crafting stations were centered around courtyard circle that included t-shirt painting, scrapbooking, sun catcher painting, sand art and lots more.

Dads busy doing important work at the t-shirt painting station. I think they had just as much fun as the kids.

With the help of a wonderful group of volunteers and TARGET (they donated the shirts), it made for an awesome day for the kids and parents! 

                                    A few April showers couldn't put a damper on the event!

Lots of happy faces ! 


Just needed a little extra space to dry some of the t-shirts...why not on the Pentagon courtyard grass next to the beautiful tulips??  

I'm pictured here with Linda (from Connect and Join) who worked extremely hard to organize this event.  It turned out to be an awesome time for everyone and a day I'll never forget. After all, how many opportunities will I ever get to visit the Pentagon?
