Oh my Goache!








A few months ago,I was asked to participate in a postcard auction benefit in hopes of raising money to help build a school for orphans in Freetown, Sierra Leone(http://btorpostcards.blogspot.com/). I was happy to contribute then it sunk in that the material the artist would be working on was birch wood..which is impossible to print on or at least find a printer who will , so I had to bite the bullet and break out the gouache and do something I haven't done since first year at langara college's fine art's program 1999... paint, in the end I think it turned out o.k. and it was a lot of fun being off the cintiq, so I don't think this will be the end of me painting.
