Erykah Badu

So, it's been a little while. I just moved into a new place here in Philly and have been pretty busy with that along with other things. Last Friday night, after a long day of moving which sill wasn't quite done, I got a call from the Seattle Weekly for a "beautiful portrait" of Erykah Badu by Monday morning. I had a pretty busy weekend planned already and my studio space wasn't set up yet, but it was fun to pull some all nighters for this. She's such a beautiful person to paint and I really enjoyed doing this piece.
