Just a peek-detail from a portrait in progress

Hi all, haven't inserted an image in a while, so hopefully I did this right... Here's a scanned detail from an egg tempera still in progress which I've been working on over a period of time for my spiritual portrait series. The full painting is 19 1/2" x 15 1/4", and you can see the full image as it progresses on one of my blogs at

Rather stunning so far. Honestly, this is a WIP? The hair and lips are awesome.

Edit: same with the flower petals, I couldn't imagine them being dialed in any closer than they are.

Still adding petals for the feeling of a 'shower of petals', and changing some things at the bottom of the panel, but further into it, so here is another view:
