Progress on The Prodigal

A quick post to show my progress on this piece. To get the history of this piece, go here. Because of the time factor and work involved, I'm first concentrating on "The Prodigal Son" and "The Patient Father" panels so that if something happens and I can't finish the last piece of this triptych, "The Pouting Brother" I will still have these two to present. I messed up the tree so am working to correct that right now, but needed a break from painting so thought I would update you.

BTW...the father is still in underpainting. Will be adding color shortly, I hope.

More to come later. Thanks for visiting and if you have any critiques...I'm open to that.

Thanks again.


  1. I am so impressed with this project! I came before and should have left a comment. Your winning piece last year was awesome - congrats on that one! This is ambitious but it has already given you the opportunity to share this beautiful story with your grand-children and many will see and appreciate this triptych making it sooo worth your struggle! Thanks for posting the wip - I will be back soon to see how it's progressing! Looks great so far!!

  2. Thank you Rosemary. Yes, it has been a blessing to work on this project. My grandchildren keep track of it also.
