Sharing My Art Journey… Pt 4

I started to explore the world of art, not as a creator, not as a business, not as an admirer, but as a patron. I wanted to understand who bought art, why did they buy what they bought.

Sharing My Art Journey… Pt 3

I started painting in 2016. By then I was nearly six decades old and had lived the proverbial “Good life”.
