Roy Minagawa, former owner of Picassos in downtown Elizabethtown, has been an artist in the area for years but recently opened an art gallery called Galley 31 West.
Throughout his life, he’s done projects to make money: portraits, pets, houses, landscapes, logos, signs and tourist items. Now he’s painting what he likes and said it’s like learning to paint again.
The same is true of the art he keeps in his gallery.
“If I don’t like it I don’t carry it,” he said.
