Chasing the Dragon

WIC_paintThis is the third year I’ve contributed to the Women In Canoe fundraiser dinner! In the previous 2 years I made paintings with boating, but there’s only that much you can do with ladies sitting in a boat so I tried something different and more energetic this time. The final winning bid ended at $260! I got the idea when I was riding the bus as it was going on the bridge and there were all these other highways and roads snaking in different directions in the air and they kind of looked like dragons. 

I was really tight on time this year because there was SpringFest and Anime Boston on the consecutively on the weekends before the WIC event so I worked on this a bit during the conventions too.

This painting was done with India ink and gouache.
