This is crazy! I started working on the pattern for “Mary, Mother Of Jesus” on August 12th, and I finished her just FOUR DAYS LATER, on August 16th! That’s a real record for this project! I had no major problems or obstacles that needed to be worked out, not even anything I want to fiddle with after the fact. Everything went quickly and smoothly. Wow! Would that they all could be so painless! With the completion of Mary, I am now two thirds of the way towards my goal of finishing all twelve paintings. I’m getting excited to get them finished. I have her calligraphy yet to do, but that shouldn’t take but a couple of days or so. I can’t get over how fast it went. I think Jesus just wouldn’t want me to mess up His Mamma! I thank Him for letting me paint her (as I envision her) so painlessly!
