Whew! This painting is finally done. It's about a legendary religious experience Saint Teresa had. It took me around four months to finish this one. Raised by Wolves holds the record at six months BTW. I had a deadline with this one, so that helped getting it done. Considering that it's 90 inches high and 40 inches long, I did pretty good timewise. There's something really powerful with this one. It's larger than the observer AND it's spiritual in subject matter, so you really feel it. Feel...something. That's key. Oh yeah, for those of you curious about St. Teresa, read about her interesting religious expereince and life here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Teresa_of_%C3%81vila
