Jesus Praying- painting by genaminna Jesus Praying- painting by genaminna
I did this (last Sunday) for our Singles’ Ministry leader and his wife who are leaving for Jamaica. :( They seemed to really like it! But it was kind of a rush job (did it in like 3-4 hours or so), but I think it’s okay considering where it started, LOL (it was REALLY shoddy, lolz). Done in acrylics! (Well, mostly… first, I tried it in what I thought were “pastels”, but turned out to be more like crayons -_- LOL, again… shoddy.)

It’s kind of a combination of these two pics: [link]

I haven't done realism (portraits) in quite a while, lolz. And then, I saw the couple today (I thought they had left like, last Wed. or Thurs. or something), and I'm like, "If I knew you'd still be here, I woulda spent more time on it!" lol, oh well... t'is the way the cookie crumbles. xDD

This is acrylics, mostly. I messed it up with (fake/cheap) oil pastels first... haha, but I'm glad you like it. Thanks so much!! :)

I am catholic and I really like this work. It reminds me of Jesus Christ praying in Gethsemane. Very well done ^^

(I'm sorry if I commited any mistake, I'm not used to talk about religion in English ^^U)

It's okay! You seemed to do fine to me! ^^ lol :) And thanks! I was thinking more like Mark 6:46 when he went on the mountainside to pray (though, he seems to pray in the mountains a lot; not just in that instance...)

Really?? SHODDY??! My God, this is one of the most gorgeous works I have ever seen with Jesus Christ within the painting. You, Ms. Genaminna--are a very talented person in artistry. I applaud this very VERY much! :clap:

Awww >< ffff! But, really, it's not as smooth as I would have liked it, and I could have worked on the shadows/coloring better, but... I know; we're our own worst critic... (but it's all true, lolzzz)
Thank you so much though!! ^^ It made me feel a lot better about my painting! ^.^ :hug: :D :heart: ^__^

That is pretty much true about self-criticism on our works. ^^;
Yet, its best to keep some hope and optimism on the side and work on the mistakes. :)

You are very welcome, miss. :)

You're Welcome! 28 is the opposite of "super old" hhaaha. :iconluvluvplz:

Hey can you check out my artwork? It's not that great, I turned 13 in late February (as if my age should be an excuse for the poor quality!) Haha.
Thanks so much! :painter: :jedi:
