Inspired by :
My bounty is as boundless as the sea.
My love as deep;
The more I give to thee,
The more I have,
for both are infinite.

William Shakespeare

Face painted in Corel Painter.
Mask from my oil painting, ship brush from my husbands oil painting..grunge texture brushes added. The weave of the cloak is from my fractal…used as a texture to paint.
Blended together in Paintshop Pro 12.

Have been painting on the face for weeks..finally called it finished…but I can always see room for improvement.

Thanks for looking.
