To celebrate our 2nd Anniversary, Sonia Bublaitis has donated this beautiful piece of artwork to our community. We are so excited as this is our very first auction and thank Sonia for this wonderful opportunity. It would look fantastic in your home or office!
This beautiful piece is designed and hand-painted by Sonia using mixed media on Perspex. The painting is supplied with 2 stainless steel standoffs which allow for a small gap between the painting and the wall giving it a very up to date look! It is entitled ‘Love in Motion’ and measures approximately 14 x 46 cm (5.5 x 18 inches).
