CLICK HERE to see the series of SMALL AFFORDABLE PAINTINGS I am offering in participation of the Artist Support Pledge. The ASP was conceived by European artist Matthew Burrows in response the COVID-19 pandemic, as a way to help artists impacted by gallery closings, show cancellations, etc. In it, artists post images of small affordable works for sale for no more thank US$200 each.
