There are only a handful of main ways for an idea to be interesting.

My Favorite famous artist Aldo luongo

If you have time..take a look at some of his beautiful art.

I had about 10 or twelve of his original Lithographs and when I sold my

restaurant and moved to California, my house burned down and lost

all of them, including another artist..Charleton..if you ever heard of him

I wrote about him in one of my paintings here..this is his website and

here is the very first picture that I had..most of his work was about

love and pictures like this..

hope enjoy them..
