This painting by RD Riccoboni is inspired by the work of my friend photographer Joe Wolf.
RD Quote: The artist must show us something that we always see but only they can convey to us through the inner truth they have experienced. The artist experiences it first then takes us there showing us what magic belongs to them and then gives it away so we can experience the excitement too. That is the magic and value of art and artist. – RD Riccoboni
