Events and Exibitions

Triad or three; which, in this case, involves the three primary colors. Triad: Yellow, Red And Blue. Greetings! Its Day 29 of the #30paintingsin30days challenge hosted by Leslie Saeta Studio.

Greetings! Welcome to day 23 of #30paintingsin30days. And, for today, I present another version of “Espresso Time-R”. This time, the […]
Surprise – as in something unexpected. Different Intentions… Greetings! Yes, today’s painting is a bit of a surprise to me!
