"The Red Mitt Gang"

Another beautiful day in the neighbourhood, my Lovelies.  Do hope you had a smashing weekend.
A quick post today.  I've been caught up with renos on the house this weekend.  Didn't have much time to think about blogging.
Some of you have expressed an interest in the story of and the series "The Red Mitt Gang".  Thought I would show you one more piece.  I'm linking to Art Journal Journey.  This is the last in the series of nuns in their 'black and white' habits.  After that I became interested in the medieval attire, when burlap was worn and did a couple using that theme.  These pieces are all part of my art journals still in Mexico.  So for today, I will share another large painting simply called "The Red Mitt Gang".
Thanks so much for dropping by, my Pretty's.  Take care and enjoy the moment.

  6. Hi Donna! wowser thats a great painting, you really have captured the feeling of the nuns skating on ice wearing red mittens!! Laughing!! Its a very good bit of artwork and I do agree this could easily grace biscuit tins, chocolate boxed and Christmas cards! Cxx

  7. Marvelous although I don't remember my nuns wearing red mittons. xox

  8. Your nun series is more than delightful and wonderful.
    I am wondering if you painted them in sunny Mexico Donna?
    Love where your imagination and talent takes us!

  9. This is another awesome painting of the happy nuns enjoying the snow and ice. The red mittens is a fun addition.

  10. That must have been a fantastic sight, seeing those nuns skating. I say that because you've created some wonderful paintings. I think this one is my favorite, but then again, it would be hard to chose. Hope you're having a wonderful day!
