With the upcoming holidays and season of gift giving I have been working on a bunch of small, original art work. These are all 8"x8" or 8"x10". I am selling these for $100 tax in per piece. I have posted a few and I am working on more to come. If you are thinking of something a little bit different this year come and take a look. Just send me a message, I'll gift wrap it for you too.
