National Military Spouse Network Art Show - Seeing Daddy Off...

Seeing Daddy Off...
16 x 20
Oil on Canvas

In October I am curating an exhibition for the National Military Spouses' Network.  The artwork featured will be by military spouses, veterans spouses and, retired military spouses.  I am very excited to be a part of this wonderful group.  Click HERE for the prospectus to enter paintings or photography into the show.  The theme of the show is "Together we serve".

As one of the curators I have the opportunity to contribute to the show.  I LOVE to paint portraits and figurative pieces.  For this series a story will be told starting with this one.  This is a spouse and child seeing her loved one leave on a deployment.  It is an everyday part of life for a military spouse...never easy...but a part of life.  Every military spouse serves in a very special way.  I am proud to be a military brat, military spouse and mom to two military brats.    


  1. This is going to be a wonderful series, Maria. This is painted beautifully and I as well, am proud of our Military!

  2. What a great theme. I can tell it will be wonderful for all involved!

  3. When we left Greg in TX after our visit, I cried- and it was only another 2 weeks until he came home. When he came back, the kids reach out to hold his hand and just smile at him. The real heroes along with the brave service men and women include you, Hilary, Memere, and the wives who have months of a deployed spouse. It's not for the faint of heart. I can't wait to see more of the show.


Yayyy!!! Thanks for commenting!
