Art Smart: April Ugallery Picks

I know I had a painting of cherry blossoms in last last month’s Ugallery post but I couldn’t resist posting another once since it’s actually cherry blossom season in Washington, DC. That and the fact that the painting is ridiculously beautiful! In case there is someone who doesn’t know about Ugallery, they sell affordable art by young student artists. You can also now email the artists with questions or commission requests through their portfolios on the Ugallery website. This month, I tried to choose art that reminded me of spring. Enjoy!

    The cherry blossom pieces are exquisite – reminds me so much of the potomac in DC in the spring!
