The Gift of Tears, done in watercolor, white gouache, colored ink, and white gel pen on illustration board, 10x10 inches. Prints available: [link].
This was a piece I started several months ago and almost abandoned. I had the linework drawn out, but no idea what to do with the colors and little inspiration to finish it. However, following a (thankfully) short spell of artist block, I finally dug it out of my storage drawer, resumed working on it (mostly winging the colors), and got it completed.
