An ideal investment artwork.
This large Snake Vine painting by Francis Kelly, was cherished and loved, given pride of place in my home… but due to life circumstances I have regretfully parted with it… It is now on display at Indigenu gallery… and available to find a new home, taking pride of place again for someone else to love and enjoy. (Previous Owner Mat).
