Paint Talk Gallery

Like most artists in this computer age, I get lots of emails every day. In addition to questions about paint and requests for events, I receive emails from artists that include images of recent works created with our products. Those are my favorite emails, as I always am so impressed with the talent and creativity of people who use our paints.
