The Light In Her Eyes ~ New Painting

I've been sitting, off and on, with this painting from my study of women praying.

Like most of the paintings in this series,

I paint and paint and sit and paint and keep coming back

until I reach this point when I just let my brush drop

in response to the heart-dancing stillness inside...

the point when I can't seem to take my eyes away.

That's when I know she's breathing a life of her own. 

That's when I know the light.
