A brief message to my Facebook friends.
I really can use your help on this one.
As you probably know by now I am a collaborative live painter at events and as you guess the Corona pandemic dried up most of my business.
Looking into the near future (🀞) it looks like things might get better in the next few months.
I perform at weddings, birthdays, corporate events, fundraisers etc. So now it’s the time for me to reintroduce my services and rebuild it from zero (almost).
If you participated in one of my events or like what I do I can use your help. Are you or someone you know planing an event? If your answer is yes, please share. I am very curious to see if my Facebook community can help me push (re)start my collaborative painting business.
Thank you all in advance. I’ll keep you posted on the results.
My website: ronigolan.com
Or just send me a message for details.

That is the second painting in this style I just finished. There is something that makes it very interesting to look at, maybe the softness of it. I am not sure yet.
