ARTIST’S TALK

The 30 in 30 is a program initiated by Southern California Artist, Blogger, and Radio Talk Show Host Leslie Saeta. Leslie has been facilitating this program for a number of years now with hundreds of artists all over the world participating. It is meant to be fun and get artists to paint more.
