a message from the artist:
"I am a 13 yr old self taught artist. My grandpa is a inspiration to me and his painting style always motivates me. I enjoy creating art in my free time. I also competed in reflections for the state of DE under the art category and won first place statewide. I decided to paint this piece as a gift for my sister for her dance graduation. It is the biggest painting I have accomplished thus far and it was definitely a learning curve. I hope to expand my painting abilities with different mediums in the near future."
