Painting in Progress

A current painting I'm working on for my daughter-in-law and son. I still have quite a bit to do, but I wanted to share it in progress. This is a hastily snapped image. I will continue to post as I finish it. The painting is 18"x24" acrylic on canvas. The subject matter reflects both their Celtic heritage and elements of color and icon (trinity knot) from their wedding ephemera. The path leads to places unexplored just waiting for them to take it. I was relieved when they (especially my daughter-in-law) liked it. If they had not I was tempted to keep it here as a reminder of possibilities just around the bend.
More later.

Oh my God, that's insanely beautiful! You have to tell me how you got that look with acrylic. I miss you. We still need to grab lunch. I wanted to tell you about school.

Beautiful. Your symbolism could not be more spot on (as usual). Of course, the Celtic touch always appeals to me. That, my dear, is the O'Brien in me!

I'm glad to see you're still creating. I was afraid all your teaching work might force you to put that aside for a while!

Again, it's beautiful. Your daughter-in-law is one lucky gal!

Really beautiful! Actually it's the first thing I've ever seen of strange after all these years! You are so talented; a true God-given gift!

I had no idea you were so talented! This is truly amazing! Please bring it to school to show if off!
