Mother and Child for Spot challenge!

by Mary Lou 'LuLu' Haynes

Here is my 'Madonna and Child with Three Hands' for the Mother and Mother and Child SPOT Challenge this week!

'Madonna and Child with Three Hands'
c mlh1 2010

There's a lot of texture in this digital picture. I reworked a previously posted Adobe PSE scan of this icon from an antique icon book. Layered it with an antique map, antique German hymnal pages and transparency effects using MS DIE.

Although hubby and I chose not to have kids, I do enjoy all the different artworks of the Madonna and Child. The paintings and sculptures by the old masters are SO inspiring!

What do you think of my entry? Your comments are welcome.
