Mixed media on watercolor post card

I recently broke my toe, so right now it's difficult to get upstairs and work in my studio. I've been experimenting with these watercolor post cards in mixed media. I'm having fun and I'm looking forward to doing more while I recuperate!

Madonna And Child



  Madonna And Child
24"x39"
Acrylic on panel


I just completed this painting inspired by a shrine I saw in Chennai, India. It's the first large painting I've done in a long time, and somehow, for the most part, painted itself. I love it when that happens! I think it's interesting that Madonna is wearing a sari and Indian jewelry, while holding a rosary. There are so many beautiful temples and shrines in India, but this one I found striking, because of the contrast and bright colors, plus I've always been drawn to catholic imagery. I was raised Jewish, but my father was Catholic, and my husband is Hindu.
