Well, I've gotten a few more hours in on this painting. I'm hoping to have it ready for a showing at Utrecht here in Columbus. It's a weird piece, I think. Part religious icon, part Klimt inspired pattern work. I've always liked images that have part that drops out, implying parts that aren't actually there.
I can't help it. Sometimes my Catholic upbringing comes out in my art. I like the imagery, and it will always be a part of me.
I'm hoping this will be done soon. I had a devil of a time on the hands (I generally suck at drawing hands, and painting them is worse!) I'll post the results here when I have them.
