After my last post, I received a request for a painting with a Native American inspired theme. The subject of the painting grew up in the Southwest and has deep roots in that culture. This is what I came up with and I hope it does her justice. This is a birthday present, so hopefully I'm not spoiling the suprise here :)
Also, I thought this would also fit well with this week's Illustration Friday topic of "Your Paradise". I have many ideas of paradise, and one of my favorite places is Phoenix, AZ. My cousin lives there and I love to go visit her whenever I can. Yes it is hot, but I love the heat and the landscape is just incredible. So I guess this is a double paradise illustration - both for the girl in the painting (whose name is Ashley) and for me.
