Hi folks! I moved to DC recently and used to sell my art on the side before I came to America. I can’t do that here on my visa, but I still paint 🙂 If anyone is looking for abstract artwork on canvases DM me and I can share my art page with you where I post my canvases at cost price - just covering some of my materials so I can keep painting! (A great deal considering what they used to go for 😂) I’m looking for good homes for all this artwork building up! 🙌
