New Painting

We've had a pretty bad snowstorm here in Missouri. They called in the National Guard to assist the Kansas City Metro area. School's been out and one woman joked that they were calling it "Snowmaggadon". Of course, I'm using all this time off to my advantage. I'm sleeping late,  and I'm working on my new painting.

Stage 1

Stage 2

Stage 4 or 5
I'm thinking of calling it Hearts to Heaven or Hope Has Wings. I'm not sure which or something else entirely. What do you think? Or perhaps you have an idea, etsy friends.  Now I'm almost at the last stage.

Inspiration behind the painting: The Hearts are prayers that, as they ascend to heaven,  are transformed into birds. the DNA like columns are the prayers lifting to heaven, In the back, are prayer flags.

Almost final version

I have a few decisions to make:
1. Finish the bird in hands, finish hands(more details)
2. I think the column by the bird is too cluttered, maybe take it out and have one more bird.
3. Darken the sky.

So what do you think? 

Until next time,
