I am much more relaxed now painting full figures - I have a lot to learn, but I have embraced Matisse's exaggerations. I am not a realistic painter but I know I have to know how it all connects to even exaggerate. I like her though - and will put her in my Etsy shop tomorrow. Just have to add some archival finish. I am calling the painting "the work of his hands" from Psalm 19, since everything in the universe is the work of God's hands.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday (.here). Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting this awesome venue for artists around the world. Have a blessed and art filled day.
