Kome-Unauthorized Family Meals Blog
Hello readers! Missed me much? I would certainly hope so! I believe I owe all of you an explanation for my absence. Mid March as our COVID cases began to rise it just didn't feel right publishing blogs. It was a stressful time for the entire island when our Prime Minister announced the lockdown.

To Print or Not to Print?
This is the million dollar question haunting artists for years! To print or not to print? A lot of artists often choose not to produce prints of their works as they feel it takes away from the original piece. They ponder on why someone would purchase and original when "replicas" or prints have flooded the market. In this article I'm going to try to answer that question. A little bit about me, before I go into the million dollar question you are wondering about! My vision was
