244 Mystical Rose

There is much to be thankful for, kindness and love – love and kindness, and all the layers in between! Like you know – I haven’t forgotten, and I am grateful. Erm, so my folks did point out that this illustration does not bear an exact resemblance to Mother Mary but I like how I drew her even if I say so, myself! (I studied the little plastic statue that I own, for details.) Oh, and if you could not before – you will be able to form a pattern shortly once you discover more of these posts on the blog, uh-huh. Okay, Nancy Drew? (Clue #1: Confetti.)

P.S. Before this post happened, every time I visited the grotto at Our Lady of Immaculate Conception (I.C. Colony) to meditate or pray, I would whisper to her – I am going to make an illustration of you, some day. Well, because she is beautiful – to begin with; she possesses a serene strength and she never fails to show me the light in some way, or the other. Ooh, also, the grotto at this church is very peaceful; it is rather nice to gaze up at the statue whether you are praying or not, and/or just offer up your thoughts, etc.

  1. I really like how it doesn’t bear an exact resemblance, in fact it feels like what you see and I think that’s the best part of it. I like the details that you’ve paid attention to.
    Teach me your ways.
    LOVEEEEEE. Can’t wait to see more.

    1. Thank you for saying so! ❤ I don’t know that I can teach anyone properly because I made up my own tricks to learn how to draw on Photoshop with the Pen tool… I think you ought to keep fooling around with the Pen tool some more; only because you’ll learn its ways which will help you master it, eventually. Another trick is to experiment with drawing objects on Illustrator; I should have simultaneously practised drawing on it when I used to fool around on Photoshop, shucks! Oh well, but I am determined to master the workings of Illustrator, too. Drawing will be so much more easier, my outlines four times better and more projects will come a-calling. THAT IS MY BELIEF!
