Illustrated Portrait

This is a project I did recently for a client. The idea came from some illustrations I did when I was in Germany of women with castles on their heads and villages in their clothes.  I thought it would be cool to use this whimsical technique to incorporate a person’s interests into their portrait.  My client’s wife, whom I was doing the portrait of, just graduated from the University of Washington and is going to be consulting developing countries on their marine policies, this being a major part of her life it is the main theme of the portrait. She also adores her dog, and is from Kenya, so I included a mini portrait of her dog and adorned her with jewelry from Kenya.

Seth built a beautiful custom frame to go with the painting. I believe it was out of African Mohagony.  I am really pleased with the end result!

Spaghetti Feed!

This year my mom and I are going to be participating in the Alzheimers Association Memory Walk.  My Grandpa has been suffering from this horrible disease for the past several years and our whole family is feeling it’s effects.  As part of our team’s fund raising efforts we are putting on a spaghetti feed.  Entry by donation, all proceeds going to the 2010 Memory Walk.
