Majesty of Grace – Pictorial of the Drawing Process

Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate the holiday.  I’m grateful for having a place to share not only my art, but also to meet and enjoy so many awesome people in the blogging world.

I will be offline entirely for the full month of December to recharge my creative energies, develop plans for 2015, and finally to attend to the many things that have taken a back seat over the past few months to art.

The following is the documented process of Majesty of Grace drawing process – hope you enjoy.  Click onto the image for a larger view.

    Ah, I remember seeing Majesty of Grace coming together what seems like an age ago now, and came looking for this. What a wonderful final result, and the perfect title for such an image. I hope you found the break to be beneficial!

      Thank you for your lovely comment. I did find the break was really good, but was a bit rusty getting back into the swing of things today. So, tomorrow will be a new day. Thank you again ~

      Hi Doron, thank you for your beautiful comment – you are such a good friend. Happy New Year to you, if you can believe it I really did lay low and do many things other than art – a wonderful break. Now back at it and looking forward to seeing new art from you. Have a wonderful 2015!

      Hi Fiona, Happy New Year to you – thank you for your lovely note and beautiful comment. I wish you all the best in 2015, can’t wait to see your latest photographs!

  7. the comment section reflects that you are greatly loved and appreciated! enjoy your well-earned rest, though you are surely incubating!

    after three weeks ‘on the road’ i returned to the house and – shazam- there was no power.. eight days later there is still no power, and aside from not being able to use the large computer or charge the camera or laptop batteries, i really don’t s having power! i go to sleep with the birds and awaken with the birds (and paint until the last light of the day has fizzled away!)

    am in town for an injection of internet and power and will be going home tomorrow. i’m not betting that the power will be on, but it should be…

    happy holidays, amiga!

    • Mary says:

      Hi Z! Happy New Year to you – thank you so much for your beautiful message. But, I’m hoping that by now you finally have your power back on – it does make for a trying situation thank goodness that you can at least have access to power in town. You got to love your living alarm clock, the birds – fabulous little guys!! Looking forward to seeing what you’ve been up too! All the best for a fantastic 2015.

  8. Mary, I hope this month is a very restful time for you!!! Get recharged and we will see you back in January.

    Have a great break Mary! Your Majesty of Grace is fantastic – you really captured the drama of the waves crashing over the pier. Honestly, with my untrained eye it looks like an old photograph captured at just the right time.
