Somehow it just happened and I love it - I think I'll make more. You can get your copy on your Amazon marketplace.
For many years my greatest challenge was painting abstracts. 2021 was pretty magical in my intuitive painting journey. My process is simple - make a mark and then react to it.

1000 Face Challenge
I set out to paint and draw 1000 faces in 2018, I got to 800+. I did many of them live at festivals and markets
When the world returns to normal I will seek out more opportunities to paint and draw faces live - I hope to do yours :)
