Your plan could look like this one:
“Oil-base painting with “hot” colors. Inspired by fires and sunsets.
I like the color “rusty”. I appreciate landscapes in movement .I like emotional scenes.
I love imaginary and mythical characters.
I want to expose the artwork in my living room at the top of my piano. ”
