I don't think I have shown you this painting yet. It is a 5.8" x 8.3" mixed media painting I made last year for a charity art auction organized by the Kidney Friends Foundation to benefit families of kidney patients. This is one of the few original paintings I have sold.
This "Filipina" is wearing the traditional Filipiniana "Terno" dress with embroidered butterfly sleeves. I made this using my favorite technique of watercolor and colored pencils on a gessoed background (tutorial here).
I am from the beautiful tropical country of the Philippines and I like to think I am sowing seeds around the world as I make my blog - seeds of faith, or hope or maybe, creativity. I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and three great children and I spend my work days designing paper products, gifts and decorative accessories for our family gift shops, Papemelroti.
