-Hello again,
This painting now completed is the story of my life...I had posted it in the "inspirational art" thread. But since it is done in acrylics I took the liberty to share it with you. I have added some detailed close ups here. I loved your response to "with love from India"... based in India I paint again now...I've been teaching drawing and English to children all these years.
God has been good to me. I just want to say Thank you! Let the painting speak!
Arty.

That is exactly like I pictured the story, the surprise and the strain of getting all those fish on board. This is excellent work and you have caught the moment well.

You are right God is good.

How large is this?

What a wonderful painting Arty. It brings back memories of Sunday school and the beautiful pictures in the books we would read. Inspirational and illustrative are the two words that leap out at me when reading what the others have said. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you Friends,
I just want to say that all the praise rightfully belongs to "The Master Artist", my creator. I struggled with the painting for six long months...scrapping and reworking till it looked done!!
And hey I did teach Sunday school....jee, it shows!!
God bless you all,
Arty.
