Here is my third portrait for my Body of Christ project. I spent last week finishing a commission I’ve been working on for a while. It was nice to get back to an 8″x8″ portrait this week after the HUGE 24″x20″ commission. It wasn’t really huge, just seemed like it.
This is a portrait of a wonderful woman I have known through my husband’s family and through church for over 25 years. She is a big part of our church so I really wanted to have her painting included in the exhibit.
I’ve made one small change to the project. I’ve decided that any money I collect from the sale of the portraits will go to the church. Since this is a project to celebrate the body of Christ and to glorify Him, it seems the obvious thing to do is give the money from this project to the church. doh.
