  • Sky Burst

    Sky Burst by L.A. Kmen

    Rainy days are good, especially for getting work done I painted most of this piece a week and a half ago during the weird weekend of southern California storms.  It’s titled “Sky Burst,” because sometimes a whole bunch of crazy, unexpected rain comes at the same time our spirits need a little bursting out. At […]
