MOTHER AND CHILD...

Just finished my latest piece.  It's a close up of old master artist Bernardino Luini titled The Sleeping Christ. The full painting was quite large and included angels surrounding them.  These paintings, although depicting Mary and Jesus, touch us as as a portrait of any mother and child, I think.  The love and tenderness that touches your heart.  I really love the way it looks...the depth, the soulful expressions...the blackest of black highlighting the soft, sweet faces.  That's what makes it an Italian old master. I am so drawn to the old master paintings...
