Another girl with sunglasses. This is my new favorite. It is watercolor on clayboard (aquabord) by Ampersand.

This musician was at the ferry terminal in Vancouver. The painting was done as a pour- I did layers of resist/masking fluid to save the white of the paper or the color I want then I pour liquid watercolor across the paper. Then the hands and face were painted.
He now uses the image for his business card.

I took an illustration course at the New Hampshire Institute of Art before we moved to Victoria. In that course, I had to create several illustrations based on different stories. For this painting, I used my daughter as my model. She has darker hair but chose to make her blond for the illustration. I often take it to my shows and most people seem to recognize my daughter in the painting. It is my modern matchstick girl.
