Each painting can be controlled for how long they are displayed, so you can enjoy them as much as you like. It’s perfect for throwing on to browse while you’re busy playing board games or whipping up snacks for the fam.
You can also download a free book through Kindle Unlimited to learn more about the author and each work. Find that here in digital and paperback format.
