Totoro Forest Project

My piece for an upcoming benefit show called the Totoro Forest Project.
The proceeds will go to preserve a threatened slice of forest in urban Japan. The very same forest that inspired director Hayao Miyazaki to create the animated film, "Totoro". The pieces have been donated by a wide range of artists and the art will be auctioned. A book of all the works is being assembled so if you can't attend the show you can at least purchase the book and know that the proceeds will do some good.

Read all about it and browse the many amazing pieces:

Another installment in the wedding gift series. The couple has a dog that's more cute and less cartooney than the one in the painting and they spent their honeymoon in Kauai. I guess you could sense a pattern in how these paintings develop.
Acrylic on board.
