Progress on "Kimberly with Roses"

19 1/2" x 15 1/4", egg tempera (in progress) on true gesso panel

Still laying in the first layer of paint on portions of this, since patterns take time, and I have devoted several painting sessions to this egg tempera portrait since my last progress report.

studio problem

Just a note that until it is fixed, a practical problem in my studio is preventing me from working normal hours, but I hope to resume posting as soon as it improves.

Introducing "Mona Conner Portraits"

I've recently started a new blog, "MONA CONNER PORTRAITS - Portraits Large and Small" which will sometimes include my spiritual paintings, but where the emphasis is just on portraits. It's my fourth blog!

Here at Grander Joy of Spirit, I've taken a break from my first Mary in Kimberly panel until I can have a repair completed to a few areas of the gesso before I continue to apply the gold leaf, but next I will be working on final touches for one of my pastels, and will resume posting too on my progress with the portrait of Kimberly with roses.
