And Maui Moment Was The Winner!

JD-Jim_MAUI_MOMENT_live_1-18-08 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!
