The baby is my favorite part of it. His expression reminds me of my own children, with his “twinkle” (of the eye), as Addy used to call it. The simplicity of the background and the boldness of the color was quick; then, with a very wet sponge, I sketched in the Mother and Child, and waited for it to dry a bit before adding the finishing touches. Earlier, some friends suggested that I research the attributes of the Blessed Virgin for ideas; so, I did and remembered that she is known for roses, the color blue, a crown of stars, and more. The blue is something I use regularly, as are the roses but in this one I gave her a quick star crown.

Life is good this weekend.
