Tell me a little bit about your artwork display at the Kingstowne Library. The current displays are six pieces of an 8-piece mural. The mural is 8-feet-wide by 16-feet-high. Each piece is individually titled and is from one of my original works titled "The Reach." They represent the spirituality for what people wish or pray. There is also a large oil painting of a rescue dog named ‘Milo.’
