I think I'm 75% through. Gotta tighten up on some details, push the darks and lights and I should be done soon!

During breast cancer awareness month, I displayed this artwork to be raffled off at the restaurant. All proceeds of the raffle ticket sales were donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation of Charlotte, NC. With this art, I raised $280. I am content with the raffle sales but I was hoping that it would be a little bite more. But other than that, it was really fun displaying another artwork and talk to my customers about it.

Until We Meet
8"x15" Acrylic and Ink on Paper

Framed. 14½"x21"

I kinda slacked off on the frame and built it on the last day. For what it is, it actually came out pretty nice. Thought I would need at least 2 days to construct a frame. But this time, I bought an existing frame and I chopped it up to the size I want and reconstruct it. So it's semi-homemade :-D

Here's what I have so far after 2 days of work.

Sometimes I'll get too anxious about painting. And this time, I jumped straight to the ribbon/sash and lay down some details. Hopefully my values will be all right since I barely lay down the flats for the rest of the painting.

new commission

Working on a new piece now. Easy client and allowed me to do what I wanted. Just had to adjust a few minor details.

Original sketch.

Rough coloring to give me an idea what it'll look like.

She didn't like the hannya mask so I decided to take it off. So overall, it should look like the colored result. I haven't added the lotus yet.
