Epiphany

Icon

for Saturday Surprise

A new series of paintings is in the works. After concentrating on journaling and putting pages on canvas, for the last few weeks, I've decided to try to combine my love of religious icons and symbols with folk art and mixed media in a larger format. Very excited. But first a trip to the mountains this weekend with my sister and nieces hiking, gallery strolling, and important girl time!

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. Dalai Lama

What an interesting piece! The colors, of course, are wonderful, and the use of the white dots is so effective. Well done, as always, my friend.

A page so rich in colour, detail and history. Gorgeous in every way. I'm just going to enlarge it and take the time to soak it all in while sipping tea. Thanks for such a stunning submission for the challenge this week.
