…For Teressa….

Teressa is a wonderful person, a FRIEND of mine, and an outstanding painter.
I’m very happy having her friendship, she is always there for me, helping without being asked, praying for my family, encouraging me in my painting and in life in general.
I painted this piece for her, inspired by her FAITH.

Inspired By Life Group’s Hello My Dear Friend Challenge , on Sept. 29, 2010


I used as inspiration a photograph. Time ago I saw it on the Internet, on one of the Public Domain Images sites; I just felt in love with it, the image was haunting me since than to our days. Unfortunately I do not know the photographer’s name.
