Lazy Dog
Sandra Fleek
$100.00


Artist statement: I have been a painter as long as I can remember, but I had spent many years using different kinds of brushes painting walls in the houses I lived in. After finally completing my dream home and raising my children, I was inspired to get back into the creative process. I decided to try a watercolor class, as that was a medium I had always shied away from. Since then, I have been painting again with passion and have turned by family room into a studio.
Specific medium: Acrylic on stretched canvas
