Working on a new painting


Hi friends! I just started a new painting and am excited to share it with you! It is a portrait of Mary and baby Jesus. My daughter-in-law had a beautiful baby boy and I snapped this picture of the two of them and just had to paint it! I'm hoping to get it finished before the end of this month. Yikes! I better get painting! 

Oil is not a medium that I have much experience with but I am learning. I have to have patience with myself because it is so different to work with than pencil or pastel.
