Blessed Mother

This is an oil painting of the Blessed Mother. It was 2×4 in size. I painted this just to relax me. No airbrush was used to blend the colors. I used¬† wet paint and sable brush to give it a soft smooth light. I remember painting this when my wife was working. She worked at Bell Telephone at the time. I painted this painting while waiting for her to come home from work each night. I kept track of my time and it took me 8hrs from start to finish! I took this to a photographer to try to sell it for me.¬† He had it in his office. I went back a week later to see if anyone bought it and the building caught on fire. He told me the painting was burnt in the fire.

  6. Hello Carmen

    We spoke briefly at the Ludwick Picnic today (9/14/13)so I checked your website out. You are indeed a very talented man, truly a gift from God. I will share your website with friends of mine in Arizona, one who is a retired art teacher. I’m sure she will enjoy your work.
