It's Finished!

It's done! My painting for Hunter's Wish is done! Still have major issues with my blog, so, still no links, sorry! If you don't know what I've been working on this for PLEASE read my last few posts.
"Take A Big, Deep Breath"
9x12 mixed media on cradled hardboard
This painting, although it is meant to help raise money for Hunter, for me, is all about Perrin. I used roses to represent Perrin's disease, cystic fibrosis.The message is intended to inspire, uplift, and remind whomever looks at it to just breathe. But for me it will always have a deeper meaning, as Perrin never really just took a big, deep breath without effort. I also used the closest thing to "Laker yellow" as I could stand. I'm sure Perrin would be seriously bugged about that but it's not like it's the easiest color to just slap on a painting.
Well, there it is. The raffle will be at the Blue Hashi on Monday night from 5-7. Please come out and help Hunter go to Disney World with his twin brother (who also has the same disease, by the way) and his parents. Hope to see you there!
