DIY Organic Painting
Each jar holds a unique recipe for a painting that we will use to cocreate together. I have grown and curated a few of the critical items found in my paintings. Inside the jar, you will find a recipe of other items I use to create my paintings. We cocreate together when you use these materials to create a painting. Feel free to tag me on Insta with your finished piece.
