Be Transformed ... final version (sold)

Here’s the final version of the painting in my last post.
After I scanned the first version for the poster, I developed the center area with more color to enhance the painting as a work of art in itself. All proceeds from the sale of this painting will go to Emanuel Hospice in Oradea, Romania, for the purchase of medical equipment
and art therapy supplies.

This is an older one, one of my first oils, but I haven’t ever posted it. I’ve been thinking about getting back in the practice of oil painting more, in addition to the acrylics!
