Making good with art

Back in February, our very own Tristan made generous offer. He would paint a commissioned portrait and in return donate the funds to the BME Legal Defense Fund. Tristan sent me some photos of one such portrait to share with all of you.


Detail shots after the jump!

  1. WOW! This chick looks like she’s going to come alive! What an amazing painting!

  2. That’s a skillfully done portrait. Good work!And, seeing the BME LDF mentioned here – there’s been no update on it since, hm, last year. I’d love to know what’s up with that one recently. Plus, the donor page on BME apparently got lost in the transition to the new software….

  3. i thought the “legal defense fund” was no longer in existence, given that bme has enough money to send people traveling…

  4. Yeah, when I first looked at this, I thought that she looks so serene in this picture. Then I realized that it was a painting!

  5. I’m always a fan of paintings like this! I’m not sure, but the tattoo on her right arm looks like it could be a design from a deck of Tarot cards, maybe one of the swords? Anyway, brilliant work!
