Completed Madonna

The 3 foot by 5 foot acrylic painting is finally done!!!

I do still have to go in and add some color work in the hair and cheeks. However, that is something I will do after I do another acrylic painting and a pastel painting. I must move on at this point. Other work awaits.

I don't quite understand why - when I have made no gallery commitments, no shows pending - I am pressured to complete more work. Perhaps, as I used to tell my students it is necessary to create the work because I have no choice, the talent isn't mine because it came with the package God gave to me. it may not be the greatest talent the world has ever seen, but it is, and therefor must be exercised. I have been given this thing, and the opportunity to use it. Not to do so would be totally wrong!
