More of Jesus from the Masters

This is Jesus after they took him off the cross, cleaned his wounds and before they put the shroud on his head area
Blue Jesus fun to render
I call this The Sorrow, I copied a great but added the blood.
This is not a Jesus it's just a little nymph or fairy!
that I am copying and learning from! These are all little atc size which is 2.5x3.5 inches

Working on my fire sale table!

Close up of my rendition of "Starry Night"

I will be adding more layers as I go.
This piece was this weeks assignment from Life Book 2013. It's a little study on light Scale.
I bought this old table when an elderly neighbor lost his old home to a fire. When I drove by I saw everything had been burned or ruined by the water the firemen used to put out the fire. So I asked if there was anything I could have or purchase I might be able to use in my art. He asked me if  I wanted to just take this and I gave him ten dollars. It's a wonderfully made table very heavy wood of some sort. It was covered in soot and needed some work we sanded it and repainted it and now I painted the center with my dream painting. I am going to add resin and then some gold leafing.
After adding a third layer of resin the window reflects off the tables surface!

HAPPY 18TH Danny Boy!

Hard to even believe it was eighteen years ago my second born came into this world but it's true. Only ten more years before the last one is a man! LOL! I am so proud of how my children have turned out all of them. They are not perfect they have their normal childhood strong willed brat moments but they are still exceptionally good boys. Thank you God for this blessing of mine.I pray they are successful in this world and happy and in love with you Lord. I pray they always feel loved and have love and are able to give love to others. I pray they have long healthy lives, that they serve their communities in kind and generous ways and that you protect them from harm, Amen
