"Beautiful painting"

Painting came wrapped in a cardboard tube. I was able to easily mount the canvas on a frame and hang in the living room. Very large and beautiful painting with vivid colors that pop off the canvas; it receives a lot of compliments from visitors.

"impresssive"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

a lg canvas w lots of color. a reasonable price for the size and level of quality. i think the artist is still learning to attain perfection as most are. i like esp. the intermingling of the horns and in general the positioning of the subjects. an artiist to watch.
