New Art in February: “February Joy” to “Burning Desire”

Happy last day of February! At the beginning of this month, I presented a piece of art titled February Joy, which was extremely well-received (the piece even fetched a couple purchase offers – will it sell?). Designed after pieces titled Moondust, I’ll Keep Loving You and Falling (see those pieces – and more – here), February Joy was supposed to represent my return to bright, bold […]

New Art & Poetry: February Joy and Morning Glory
