Abstractions?

Posted on May 4, 2015 at 8:00am 14 Comments

Good morning R L Oliver...thank you so much for all the very nice comments on so many of my paintings.  One of the paintings that you mentioned is an actual enormous fire event that happened in California in 2011....and now again in 2017.  I really enjoyed your work also....love the bright colors and movement....It seems that I must have movement in my paintings.  Thank you for requesting my friendship...you have it. Looking forward to seeing more of your work!!
