Spring Garden Collab

Hey there! I thought I'd drop in to share a painting I did in collaboration with some other artists on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CMpUlW6hUnX/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link I've found that Instagram collabs are a bit different than art collabs I've done in the past; instead of working on the same picture, the artists do their own interpretation of a common...
