This was your first painting ever? You painted it with your soul... f/v

THanks Paula..what a moving comment..it was actually the 2nd (next to a classroom 2colored tone practice titled primus fructus )..but basically this is the first try after 2 art session on basic painting. Oh yes I put my soul next skipping my meals!

mary magdelene with night lite was the one i was initially thinking of

Maria  Disley

Hi Saigon, Found bible. The painting is by Georges de la Tour (1593-1652) And depicts Joseph the carpenter and the child Jesus, holding the candle. The similiarities to your work are clear.

wow are you an art historian?


Oh my....you're giving me goose bumps Maria. But googling in a flash i see some similar darky, yellowish color ala renaissance distinction.

Maria  Disley

This reminds me of a painting in an old bible I have somewhere, will dig it out and let u know who srtist is, it may be Carravaggio or Rembrandt.


how sweet and honest remark Archana..exactly what i wanted to convey|

Archana Saxena

Loved this piece the most in your work. Shows strong Hope.... keep it alive... keep it burning...keep it illuminating...saving it from strong winds...the message is crystal, very fine work in water colour.

Light from the darkness is always a good thing.....so is this artwork....beautifully done Saigon.

Rightly said LINDa..i am pleased of your comment and thankful!
