30 in 30 collage

Here is a collage of all 30 paintings, it was suggested by the challenger that we do this.

#30! Hot off the easel!

Just completed #30 15 minutes ago! Thanking God for having had this opportunity and for all the wonderful encouragement I've received all this month! God has been faithful thru pulled tendons, a burned finger, and nearly cutting off the tip of my right index finger. Thankful, especially, for
my husband, Mitsuo, who has taken up the slack for many things I was not able or did not have the time to do to keep this household going and myself physically to do things. This has been a great learning experience and I plan to add a few of the things I've learned through these quick paintings(ha! did I write "quick"?! most paintings took 4 to 6 hours to complete, not counting the pre-drawings and lettering)into my realistic portraits. Again thank you everyone and I am so thankful for your prayers on my behalf. Joy in Jesus

If you look really close you can tell I didn't match a couple of areas but it sure is close! As you can see I also used a lot of artistic license!

#23 Part 3 for 30 paintings in 30 days

Here is #23 Part 3. Little late and falling behind a bit, got lots to do preparing for art classes at New Life Academy. Praise report: my finger that I nearly sliced off the tip is healing, it is almost completely healed. The tendonitis is almost gone too! God is good. Thank you to all who have been praying for me during this challenge and for my healing I know that God the Father is answering our prayers because I could not have been able to even gotten this far in this challenge with out His healing, strength and the grace to do what I can not do on my own.
