Raymond Wong

Raymond Wong is a painter pal who works with me at the museum. I did this drawing over a bowl of tasty soup after work one day. The woman who served us this soup really loved the drawing, much more than Raymond loved it, and she assured me I'd make "good money" soon. Raymond is slightly nuts because he still uses lead Oil paints. His paintings are currently up in a group figurative show called Queen and Country at Autobody Gallery.

Sages and Seers is ten paintings on paper. The series uses two drawings in multiples of five. I did print transfers of the two drawings and then completed original paintings, using those drawings as a starting point.
