New Lost Boys of Sudan portrait: Thon

After a bit of a "pause" to move across the country from Brooklyn, NY to LA and then have a baby (!!!) I'm starting back up on this project. I can't believe it's been so long but I'm really motivated to get back to work because I think the Lost Boys' stories are important.

I've done lots of smaller paintings in the time since we moved in November 2010- due to lack of space, time and some physical restraints. Plus, I was just tired. But now that my baby is 16 months old I have a little more time and a lot more motivation!

I'm going to try to post more regularly on here. I also have a new series I'm working on that is re-energizing my love for painting as a medium and the the journey of discovery through paint. I'll be working on the Lost Boys portraits at the same time and posting those as I go!
