JD Miller was featured in the July 2008 issue, LUXE Magazine of Dallas/Ft Worth. The two page spread talks of JD’s music profession and how he was introduced to the art business. Daniella Brodsky of Luxe Magazine interviewed JD on his 3-D Oil technique and he was quoted, "I wanted to bring out color in 3-D, and I happened to notice that mounds of oil on a palette looked similar to clay".

JD Miller painted live at the Las Colinas Polo Club on May 3, 2008. Polo on the Lawn is an annual spring fundraiser benefiting The Family Place. It was an afternoon of thoroughbred beauties, champagne divot stomping, live art performance and side-line socializing. JD will auction off his live painting "Polo Lilies" Friday May 30th at REFLECTION Fine Art Gallery. The auction’s proceeds will go to The Family Place. The agency opened one of the first shelters for victims and their children in 1978. In 30 years of service, The Family Place has counseled more than 135,000 clients, provided life-saving shelter to more than 16,000 women and children and answered more than 450,000 calls for help. So come and bid on an orginal JD Miller and give to a great cause.
It was a night of Flamenco Dancing, Music and Art. REFLECTION Fine Art Gallery was packed with people watching Flamenco dancing at its best. Virginia, Sandra and Julieta danced the night away while art lovers walked through the gallery to view the current art exhibition, "Spring Reflections". There was also live music that included David Quintana on the guitar and Alfredo Gonzales on the Cajon. REFLECTION Fine Art Gallery is truly a place where all forms of art come to life.

Last Friday January 18th Jim Augur was the audience member who chose the title for JD Miller’s latest masterpiece. People crowded around JD when he started painting live while Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony played in the background. Some audience members whispered “I see fireworks!” while some just stood there taking it all in.
When the final touch of paint hit the canvas, applause filled the room. It was now time to name JD’s newest addition to REFLECTION Fine Art Gallery. Many different titles were called out but when “Maui Moment” was spoken, everyone agreed that it was the perfect title for the painting. So a special thanks to Jim Augur for the clever title and to everyone who came to participate in the energy of an unforgettable evening!
