This is our 13th issue of TUBES, unlucky for some? Not really, we don’t don’t believe in luck here at painters TUBES magazine or at painters TUBES Artists Showcase Gallery. We make our own luck. What we do believe in is Artists and painting as an Art Form. And in this issue there are some great artists and some super original paintings for you view.
And of course some really engaging articles and special essays, with a few strong opinions, all wrapped up in a beautifully designed magazine and a with a touch of art history included for good measure, expanding peoples knowledge and enjoyment, as is usual with paintersTubes magazine….issue #13 is a great issue and is not to be missed by art lovers and artists everywhere.
