new painting! I did this one right after Emerald City but it ended up taking me slightly more than 2 weeks due to my mom getting here, lots of doctors visits now that I've hit the third trimester and just general prepping for baby stuff. I tried a new technique based on kevin wada for this piece but found it didn't feel comfortable and didn't really work for my style. This is why the colors in this piece are a bit different than my other ones. Still I'm happy with it. I like the theme of it, I like the concept of this kind of warrior/tiger energy moving forward in the face of doubt and fear, maybe I'm trying to channel some of that now that I'm about to have a kid and all of that. Enjoy!
I'ts been a minute. I have so much to get done lately sometimes it feels like I'm drowning. I've hit the third trimester, which means baby prep needs to happen soon, and my family is starting to all migrate to me as it draws closer. I also have a lot of followup correspondence to do post ECCC, and I need to start thinking about Rose city now, and whether I can do it after baby is born.
Then there's the current painting, and I've been thinking about new youtube vids and stuff like that... I'm still not working fulltime, and although print sales are nice I want to start doing book covers, so I've been brainstorming ways to get my name out there and get the ball rolling on that.
But for now, here's a little bit of the new painting, still in process, which is really coming from a personal place of strength, determination and fighting self doubt right now.
