It's quite ralistic (however colors are so intensive that they almost shine...). But whole picture is very nice for the eye:)

LOL, I meant Assumption all right! Correct me if I'm wrong, since I'm still learning about my own faith, but The Ascension is when Jesus was taken up to Heaven after the Resurrection, while it's called the Assumption for Mother Mary (The Feast is called The Assumption, as far as I know....)... unless I'm mistaken!

(I was just replying to a comment I made which I made earlier one, and guess what? I misunderstood the person! XD)

:) I guess you're right, I didn't know those two events have different name in English. In Croatian they are traditional called totaly differently, the one you say is The Ascension is called something like The Redeemption Day. I guess our misunderstanding come from those facts. I'm glad I've learned something new. Seems I had to change the title now... :D

I hope your grandmother likes it. It is very dynamic piece. Quite bright and full of hope and joy. There are a lot of symbols in it. I think the image would be better if you added a bit of dark undertones on it as well as sme earthy tones, it will bind it together more and give it a bit more depth.

I am lucky to have her for sure. I simply adore her, and can't imagine time when she will not be with us anymore. I know numerous grandmothers that don't even ask for their grandchildren, and she allways try to gather us around her, and to help us when she can.

I just love this piece. :love: Amazing posture, the folds on Mary's clothes and the angels' robes look so natural, and the fluffy clouds on the background.... the whole picture radiates warm, protective light. Great work Jasna - and a gift to be treasured :hug:
