The Austin 2010 Calendar is now also available at the OASIS gift store — the OASIS is an amazingly picturesque restaurant overlooking Lake Travis, to the northwest of Austin.


The booth I had at the "Keep Austin Bizarre" Bazaar was a great success! Great to meet many new people and hear so much great feedback on the art and the calendar. If you were there, thank you!

Rick DiBiasio

Many many thanks to Rick DiBiasio, CFP, and author of the incredible book "The Affluent Artist", who has very generously featured some of my artwork on his blog!

I learned of the book this past December and read through it very quickly and with great interest. It contains lots of great insight and very valuable information for artists who are serious about their work and of the conviction that art is a career path that deserves to be taken just as seriously as any other. I am currently re-reading the book (along with my list of four or five others!) and highly recommend that you get a copy for yourself if you are a creative working to reconcile the far-too-common disconnect between being creative and earning a good living.

Thank you again, Rick!

Sincerely, Jay
