This Crazy Election is behind us, lets get busy!

If your like me, you've probably heard rumblings in retail shops, galleries, art shows and many other businesses, about how the business climate this past year has been messed up because it was an "Election Year"!
Well, I'm sick of hearing it! The election is over, so lets get to work and take charge of our economy!
I'm starting right now in my studio with these new works.

It isn't to early to think about"Holiday Gifts",
This fall I've put together a number of framed mini-fly originals,
and have a few earlier originals as well,
 keeping an eye on affordability.
All original paintings are acrylic on canvas.
