Max’s Portrait – OPAL PASTRO ART

The organiser of the pub exhibition space is an artist  herself, and a teacher. I was a bit surprised at her delight when viewing my work for the first time. She was so excited over Lucky that she bought it on the spot! I was thrilled that an artist and someone who taught art would like my animated-looking quirky animal paintings enough to want to buy one.

There were three. Two big black ultra excited hounds met me at the gate. One of them was Max.
