Message from J.A. Castillo

We would really appreciate your opinion.  Feel free to make suggestions and send us your comments. 

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your comments and your support.  Here are some of your comments about my art:

"I took a look at your surreal and colorful art, keep up the good work!" - Sirkku Sylvia, Finland

"I like the colors of your paintings. They are often bright and optimistic. The suggestiveness and the symbolism of your pieces is subtle and pleasant.
