Portrait is very loosely based on a Juliette Belmonte painting. Painted on a 9 x 12 cradled board. Mixed media background is the prep for another painting.
Some new graphics that I bought from Gracie Tracy make up this montage. I was thinking of memories and gratitude since it is Thanksgiving week. Good memories are a blessing to be grateful for! The image is from the graphics collection as well, no relation to me.
Before the Tubbs fire destroyed my home and everything I owned, I had been just a few days short of creating a Daily Graces piece for a year. It took me a bit to get back to where I could create these again (which is why they are called Daily Graces Return). But I have now reached #300 and felt grace a fitting theme for the day. The quote is from the hymn Amazing Grace.
Decided to just experiment and play today using portions from a couple of paintings and some digital graphics. Experimentaion is a key to Imagination.
