New TrIpPy cLiCkS gallery

Check out my new TrIpPy cLiCks gallery. Comfortably Trippy (Texas-2017)   It’s all designed to be a bit trippy. Otherwise what I call “Happy hour affected imagery.” Anything you see can be framed and delivered direct to you. Speaking of that, I have two large framed pieces of the above available that I’m offering at a great price. It’s a 22” […]
