Im Back!!!

Phew! Last week was crazy! I finished up my last days at work, and now I am ready to throw myself into this blog and my artwork full time. 
I have been branching out a bit lately with some pieces that are more portraiture than mixed media. I used to paint portraits quite a bit when I was a teenager and I am really loving getting back into it. 
The following are works in progress, but I thought I would share their process so far. 

The girl with the books on her head is being created for a charity auction for Red Seven 
They are working to raise $12,000 to build a primary school for children in Lai Gow, India and will be auctioning off my work for the cause. Go here to buy tickets! I hope to see you there. 

p.s: Its good to be back!
