1st stage of "Glory Dance"

This is the painting I am currently working on.

As you can see I have only put a portion of the trees in. As I paint more trees I will continue to add butterflies. The butterflies will only be in the light. I want them to appear as if they are performing a glorious dance in the light.

I will probably darken the right side of the painting, and add depth over all to the painting by adding some sort of greenery or something... in between the trees. I had thought about adding a rose in the lower part of my painting, but I am unsure if that will happen. Sometimes a painting takes on a message all on its own. I think this is one of those times.

When I paint, I just let the painting tell me what it needs. I go into my own little zone where there is nothing but the picture and me. :)

I will continue to show you the progress as I paint.

(Please continue to pray for my sister. I explain more regarding her situation in the post below.)

I just love it when you post the progression of your paintings..I love to see how you are able to make all the changes as they go along...I would love to be able to paint myself...but since I do not have the talent...I live it through you!!!
I am praying for Stacy and her family as she deals with the situation with her son...
