While researching the Puerto Rican Painters Al discovered there was scattered information on them online but there was no one place which showcased their works of art and the creativity that is a part of the Puerto Rican culture. We are all born with a creative side all we need to do is discover it and help it to grow. For more on Al Rios visit his page.
