Laura finds it interesting to see how her paintings have changed over the years but the best part is that even after retirement, she still loves to paint. When she sees something outside, the first thing that enters her mind is that she would love to paint it!

A whimsical cardinal will be your inspiration for this acrylic on canvas workshop.
