This painting isn't finished quite
yet but I love it so!!!!!
There is a story behind it and
many symbols in the picture
When I am totally finished the picture
I will add the finished painting and
I will then tell the story
and tell all the symbols.
Sometimes symbols emerge to me
later so I may return to
add them as I learn of them.
God will often inspire me
to create something
and then the symbols
emerge a little at a time.
So bear with me!
My normal medium is colored pencil so needless to say I started this painting as I would one of my colored pencil pictures: making patterns and tracing them on the canvas.
As you see I have traced them onto the canvas.
Beginning of the painting process.
Adding the heart, the cross, and the wings.
Painting in the wings.
Adding the clouds.
Adding some color, ornamentals, small snowflakes,and beginnngs of larger snowflakes.
Adding the larger snowflakes and the leaves of peace.
