This painting is coming along quickly! I've had this photo of my niece for several years and finally decided to "get in the Spirit" to paint it. She is a very special person, and I can't help wondering what she whispered! Now that I've started, I am excited to finish, so I keep going back adding layers over the past few days. I guess this is my way of "extending the Holiday" , and I am enjoying the process. I've done the underpainting in warm New Gamboge, but the background will end up very dark, greyish blue (I HOPE!)
I have had a FABULOUS year, and I can't begin to count the many blessings I've been given. I feel very thankful and blessed, and I wish everyone GRACE, HOPE, and PEACE throughout the coming year.
Happy New Year, I'm going to continue last year's commitment to keep painting!
I think it is important to share our process with others, just as we gain from watching other artists work.
