My Eyes Have Seen The Glory

                       Still loving the Song Theme.    This is a painting inspired by the  book ,  Roll Jordan Roll.    The photographs are by  one of my favorites, Doris Ulmann.   I did my initial  drawing with a  paint brush attached to a stick so that my lines would stay loose and gestural.  Decided to keep the original lines and   monochromatic pallete with a few  hits of light paint .    Hoping your Sunday is full of Glory!

Our Lady and the Sea

            We appreciate being the guest of Sister Mary Joseph at  Our Lady of Mercy.   The sky was saying rain and the land was full of sun.   It seems to be that way there
