First, I worked more on that commissioned painting of Our Lady. I couldn't get one single good photo, so here are a few to show different aspects.
This one is the clearest. I may do a few more finishing touches, or it may be done. I'll scan it when it dries.
This is a bit dark, but shows more of the color dimensions.
This overexposed picture recalls the faint image it was based on, from the Pieta Prayer Book. I can find no other information about that image, which is frustrating. I'll have more to say about that when I post the final painting.
I bought a very small set of watercolors for keeping in my purse, as well as a brush that holds water inside it! Unwrapping the cakes was fun--like candy!
And just for beauty, light coming through the base of a depression glass bowl.
