New Painting 8-8-11

                                         " Free Ride " 16 x 20 oil on canvas

        Earlier this year, I was asked to do a painting for a charitable event called " The Ride For Semper Fi ". It was a great honor for me to contribute to such a worthy cause. I believe the painting will be auctioned at the 2nd Annual  Boeing RFSF charity golf tournament being held on 9/24 in Mesa, AR. For more info on the tournament and silent auction, or if you would like to bid on the painting , go to the Group's website listed below.
        About The Ride for Semper Fi
The third annual Ride for Semper Fi is a philanthropic bicycle ride that begins in Scottsdale,
Ariz., and ends three days and 430 miles later at SeaWorld in San Diego. Fifty cycling
enthusiasts, including some former Marines, will complete the journey. The ride begins on
Oct. 13, but the fundraising journey begins now with a goal to raise more than $177,500 to benefit the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. To donate to the Ride for Semper Fi, or to learn more about us, visit:


  1. Matt, I just saw an exhibition at the Michener Museum in Doylestown, Pa. of the art of William Trego. Trego was an artist who had virtually no use of his arms and hands due to a childhood illness.

  4. Matt, how much are you asking for The Ride painting? I did not see a price tag on it. Thanks, Matt. I wish you all the best my friend. Semper Fi!

  5. I have a friend who is a veteran. She was telling me about a new military website she heard about. The name is She told me that it lists local businesses that offer discounts to the military. I decided to go and look at it myself and found a great site. Not only are there discounts, but there is military related news, jokes and benefit information. In this economy, who couldn't stand to save a little money?
