"Madonna Magdalena"...

Here's a painting I did a while back of a very beautiful friend of mine.  (I still like the idea of doing a series of paintings where I "canonize" people I know on canvas.)  She herself has a Sacred Heart tattoo on her chest, so I wanted her to have an exposed front to display the glorious tattoo.

I wanted the feel of this piece to be one of purity, but also edginess.  So she has dark lipstick and nails here, and a septum nose piercing, but also the starry halo and vibe of holiness.  I gave the piece to the friend in question whom I painted here.

I still have to get around to painting St. Tommy Wiseau - but I need to feel up to it first, though!
