Warrior of the Sunset

2019
Watercolor and sharpie on paper
14 x 11 in
35.6 x 27.9 cm

A stunning portrait of a Maasai warrior silhouetted against the sunset. Aria Luna couldn’t travel to Africa for this piece; she was at summer camp exploring different world cultures. But she would have loved to meet a real Maasai warrior. Maybe one day…

And who knew sharpies could do art this well!

Tryx

2019
Color pencil on paper bag
10.6 x 5.1 in
27 x 13 cm

Tryx, a character in one of Aria Luna’s stories she’s working on at school.

This sure flips the concept of “back-of-the-envelope” on its little paper bag head.

Geisha

2019
Oil pastels on paper
18 x 12 in
45.7 x 30.5 cm

Another work from the summer camp where the kids explored world cultures through art. This is a Japanese geisha.

Melissa

2019
Pencil on paper
8.5 x 5.5 in
21.6 x 14 cm

Portrait of a young girl.
