All the best,
my new store, items added all the time. http://stores.ebay.com/Michael-Orwick-Arts
My art hints at a story and then invites you to finish the narrative. My style has been called Inspired Expressionism, which combines impressionistic brush strokes and a touch of realism to create the atmosphere and lighting woven into my work.
