Art by Linda Tribuli and Randy Sprout for LA vs NY

Linda Tribuli- Amitville, New York

The last couple of years I have been drawing and taking pictures. I enjoy this as a hobby. I have been very creative and tried to put it to work. I enjoy doing art work and look back at my pictures and are proud of what I have done. Maybe one day I will be able to show my art work. I just put a book together as gifts. I call it,” Art Through My Eyes”. I caption all my art work. They were please with the book and I was proud of it myself. I love art, and music. I hope to put it all in a book one day.
