Puzzle art for Etsy

I've decided to part with my Puzzle art lady.     she is in my Etsy shop
She WAS in Miami at the Basel art show , and I WAS going to keep her .... but I decided to try to sell her
so this is all about this piece >  I made a puzzle , which took forever because the pieces were so small , and then instead of finishing the puzzle ... I decided to paint on it , after I painted her I attached her to wood and then I went around all those intricate edges on my scroll saw , sanding and painting all the edges black .
Sometimes I'm even amazed at my patience .
I made this piece a few years ago , so now I look at it and appreciate her in a different way !
She can hang on the wall and cast cool shadows { I raised it up a little in the back }

she's in my shop

Nun Painting for Etsy [ sold ]

I love this nun peeking at my window
She is in my shop
I painted her on wood .... then cut out on my saw

Mother Gavrilia was the inspiration
I bought a book at a library book sale ..... and her photo was on the cover
I read the book and then I decided to paint her
I'm not catholic ..... I am a born again Christian , but I did enjoy this book
anyone who loves the Lord will enjoy this book . We can all learn a lot from Mother Theresa or Mother Gavrilia
You can see the book cover in my etsy shop
I hope you will go there to read a little more and see more photos

* update * .... she is sold ... thank you !
