I have a question.. Are there pictures You have done that U didn't wanted to sell or felt a bit sad as you got a buyer as you might did wanted to let go? Did you draw pictures who are really personal and not for sale at all.. Maybe if would U show us one?
It wonderful! Is there a way to show the painting up close. ? It's hard to see the details
I was going to ask that we can’t see the details it looks very interesting xxxxx
