See the Paintings from Earthly Delights

Dear Concetta Antico Art Lovers,

I am glowing in the great success of my last show ~

Earthly Delights

A great hug of thanks to all who supported the event and shared their love of my work with me.  Seven masterpieces have already found their new homes and a few more on the brink! Fine art has once again come forward for the children of San Diego, with an $1880 donation to Rady Children’s Hospital, as a portion of every masterpiece I sell goes to their cause.

Enjoy seeing the new masterpiece paintings here and a few pages of my Art Anthology “All This & Heaven Too…” If you have interest in being a collector, adding to your collection, or owning my book I would love to hear from you!

Blessings To You All…
