Sacred Heart of Jesus after Pompeo Batoni



Sacred Heart of Jesus after Pompeo Batoni, Terry Nelson, 2011
Acrylic on panel.  11 x 14
I worked on this painting very slowly, spending only an hour or two a day, a few days a week.  I didn't want to finish it.  I still have a few more glazes to apply and blend.  The painting is for a large, tabernacle type, retablo frame.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on me a sinner.

Beautiful faith-filled work, Terry.

Thanks very much Paul and Fr. Joe. I finished it yesterday and will likely do another scan before framing.

So beautiful! He looks just like your child Jesus.

Ooh, that is just beautiful!! I have thought about attempting to draw the SHOJ for some time now, but the idea intimidates me. Terry, you have done it justice!

Keep it up!

Nan - It does? It may be because the pose is the same - with the hands and the heart that is. Thanks.

Kim - thanks. I was very much intimidated to approach painting the image. I hope it is pleasing to him.
