Big Paintings On Little Canvas.

Ladies!, I have a special post to show you today! As some of you may know I love art! specially Abstract, pop-art and anything with trees,birds and COLOR!. now Im no artist but when it comes to my nails I TRY lol, so imagine my amazement when about two weeks ago an artist by the name of Mike Grubb, (a world know artist who is known for his abstract,pop-art and vibrant art work) contacted me!,telling me he had seen my nail art on the page of an artist whose work I had previously replicated. He asked me if I would like to collaborate with him and replicate his art work on my nails! You guys had to see how excited I was!, Within minutes of reading his E-mail I responded telling him I was more than honored and I would LOVE to. After looking at his art I was stoked because the type of art he does is the type of art that I absolutely love and wish I could have all over the walls of my apartment.His work is simply amazing! it seriously reminds me of Andy Warhol art, at the end of this post I will share with you his link, so you can see yourself how awesome his paintings are. Now,the nails, Out of all of his paintings I decide on these two which I really really liked the first is Called Love Birds  and the second, Sunset On Cactus here they are
