The Lost Coin

Luke 15:8-10 tells the parable of the lost coin. (On either side Jesus tells about the lost sheep and then the prodigal son. All three stories show the joy of the one who has found what was lost. Their reactions show undeserved favor (grace). I’ve included photos that show the process I went through to arrive at the finished piece. Enjoy.

Mixed Media
27×38 inches


photo research, took about 20 self time shots to arrive at this!
sketch figure onto paper
decided to block out everything with underlying layer of tissue paper.
finished tissue paper, let glue dry and started with oil pastels to add detail.

finished the skin and clothes then used wax and melted crayon to do the floor detail.

last step was make confetti and cover the entire piece in wax.
