Limoncello - Palette Knife Painting - Amalfi Lemons

24" x  30" x 1.5 inches, Oil on stretched canvas

I've been selling my art on Ugallery for the past few months.  Well for Labor Day, an email went out to the other artist seller which surprised me and made me happy!!  It had to do with a reply on their comment page which every artist on their site have - a buyer or a viewer might leave a comment for the artist and it is up to us to respond so I did:

Judy Mackey's Ulog
The email that the Ugallery staff send said and I'm only cutting and pasting a portion of it:

Greetings Everybody,

Happy September! The summer is coming to a close and as a gallery we couldn't be happier. The holidays are just around the corner, and we're ramping up oodles of exciting new site features to make sure we're ready for big time sales. 

Heading into the new month, we have a few items to share:

1) Ulog selling points. Painter Judy Mackey wowed us recently with a great Ulog response (see above). Judy responded promptly and her tone is upbeat and personal.  She also casually shares some great site selling points:
1. Our 7-day trial (takes all the risk away from the buyer!)
2. We are a living site that posts new work by real artists every week (encourages buyers to come back).
3. Finally, she keeps her response focused. We've found that if a client is already interested in a specific piece, offering them up other work to consider on Ugallery or your personal site can overwhelm them with choice.  Focus on selling the piece they are already interested in.

I was honored and touched to be mentioned!!

A little on this painting above - Limoncello - the very strong alcoholic drink made from lemons.  Along the Amalfi Coast of Italy - there are lemon growers along the cliffs - known for their lemons and this strong liquor.  So this painting of a big bowl of lemons - it seemed appropriate to give it this title - available for purchase on Ugallery.

If you are interested in purchasing "Limoncello", please email me at  If you like my work, I hope you will refer me to your friends.
