Window view "Heimaklettur"

A good friend of mine asked me if I could paint our Heimaklett looking through her window where she was staying last summer.  I said I would give it a try but knew it would be a challenging job to make it look like it was seen through glass, but I had to have a go.

This is my idea drawn up with a charcoal.

The first ground laid.
The progress.  I can see I already had the colors too strong so have to gray them up a bit ....

Women and Christ

Here is my final work
oil on stretched canvas 8öx60cm
My progress
Original sketch 
I had the pleasure to be asked to join other artists to paint "Konur og Kristur"
which is going to be shown in the city Reykjavík.
We had the Bible to work from.  
I choice the saga of the woman who suffered from severe bleeding for twelve years "she came up to Jesus in a crowd of people and touched the edge of his cloak, and her bleeding stopped at once"
You can find this in LUKE 8: 43-45
I really enjoyed creating this painting, I went along I changed and added as my spirit told me.
Any comments will be appreciated.
