Finished at last.

Hello blogging world!
I have been putting this post off for far to long, but here it is. Finally.
If you remember I talked about this painting in several of my posts in the past. It has become the most challenging painting I've done yet, coming entirely from my head without ANY reference. I can't even tell you how many hours were spent on it...I wouldn't be at all surprised if I found it to be 100 hours or more. :P
This painting has seen the worst and the best in me. I've cried over it, I've prayed over it, I've yelled at it, and I've rejoiced in it.
The feeling of accomplishment that I felt afterward and the smile on the face of the one I gave it to was well worth it all, however.
I would probably do it again.
Out of everything I've created with my fingers, this product feels the most like a part of me. After all, I did cry sweat and tears over it, I'm sure some of those bodily fluids mixed in with the paint. :)
It was a very experiential project. I'm sure I didn't walk away without some good learning experience tucked away.
