* Nearly finished ...

Oh RATTS!  I really didn't want to show you "My Lady of Abundant Blessings", until she was completely finished, however, I am too excited.  I'm really pleased with the way she is turning out.  What's wrong being happy with my work, you may ask?  Just about everything, and it makes me so happy.  My critic has left the building, and all I feel is joy.  Love it!  Usually, she (Miss Perfect aka the critic) nags constantly at me.  Such a relief to have a break from it.  Only my Muse is present, and she is so loving and supportive.

Now, for My Lady of Abundant Blessings.  Her hand still needs some work .. the colouring isn't quite right.  Her earrings, although she insisted on having a pair, are too bright, and I want to tone them down a notch.

She has also requested that I collage some 'requests to the Universe' (prayers) on her heart, and perhaps add some milagros.  I'll have to wait for the oil paints to dry, otherwise this will not be a happy ending.

Other than that, she is pretty much finito.  I can't wait to hang her in my home.



I want to say thank you to the Universe for this painting.  My Lady is gift to me.  She came through me flawlessly.  I never had to change a stroke.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Take care and have a wonderful day.

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.  ~Meister Eckhart

  10. Donna, dear donna . . . your painting of the lady with the abundant spirit and blessings is so beautiful, so very beautiful! I am so happy to read that "ms perfect" critic took a hike and left you alone to create! I am truly in awe that you can paint people so well. Maybe you have done this for a while?? I just never saw yet being a recent acquaintance of yours, yowza! This painting that you have done rocks. xo lenna
