Reading Time with Spot by Liza Abelson | Artscope Magazine
art: Reading Time with Spot

medium: acrylic on canvas

My paintings reflect my fascination with the beauty, complexity and spirit in everyday things, situations and people. I am inspired by old buildings, interesting, faces, comical scenarios, expressive gestures and the beauty of the figure.
