I prefer to give homemade gifts rather than store-bought ones. This year for my friend's birthday, I wanted to make her something special. She's a huge Pink Floyd/Roger Waters fan as well as an avid attendee of Burning Man. I decided to create a painting that embodied those two loves. It was inspired by Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here album cover. The painting is titled: Wish You Were Here, Where We're Not All There.
Here's a quick GIF of the creation process. The image was sketched out then painted over using acrylic paints and paint pens.
Here is a closeup of the final painting. The recipient was very elated. Another successful homemade gift.
