A woman from Malaysia reached out to use through Facebook informing me that her father, an acrylic painter, had passed and was there a way to pay tribute to him. I suggested she post some of his work on our Facebook page along with a tribute. When I saw the work he created, I fell in love and felt his passion for art and for acrylic painting through his work. Though he was not a member of ISAP, I wanted to share his wonderful work with all of you so you could feel as inspired as I was. Here is her tribute.
