A very dear friend of mine passed away this night, October 20th, after a long illness. I started this portrait of him a few weeks ago, when I honestly thought the grief would keep me from painting at all.
To the big brother I am so lucky to have found...my heart doesn't feel the same without you here.
This semester is keeping me quite busy, so I'll have to apologize for the lack of posts. I'm currently working on four oil paintings that I hope to be posting about soon. In the meantime, here is a watercolor illustration based on the story of Sadako Sasaki and the 1000 cranes.
