This is a photo of a journal page that I've recently created. I happened to share this with someone and the person asked me if I could possibly transfer this piece to a large canvas. I had to think about it for awhile as I haven't created a commissioned piece in a very long time. In the past, it's always been a bit difficult, for me, to do a commissioned request and in particular to try to duplicate.
I call this "Ode to St. Bernadette". It apparently has significant meaning for the person who asked me to do this on a large canvas.
After much contemplation, I have decided to do it and I will keep you updated with the final result. My vision for the larger canvas is to work on fabric with joint compound and apply it to the canvas - we shall see :) I will try not to pressure myself to thinking I have to duplicate this page exactly. The most important focus of this piece is St. Bernadette herself.
Since this request, I've done a little research on St. Bernadette and it's quite fascinating learning about her journey. I'll share more, on that with you, once I complete the canvas.
In line with this, I will be taking a bit of a Blog break to work on this. I'll be back upon its completion.
In meantime, stay well and happy. Enjoy your weekend and have a safe week ahead.
Love, Marilyn xxoo
