"Madonna and Child with Candle" Oil on 8x10 in. canvas

sold

 Sorry for the glare in this picture, it's lightening the upper background a bit.  I'll try to get a better one soon.  



I had some Christmas postage stamps that had this image of Raphael's Madonna and Child on them, and I liked it so much, I thought I'd try and use it in a painting.  I looked for an image of it on the internet, and found that it is actually a larger painting, and it's called "Madonna of the Candleabra".  It has a couple of angels faces, and tall candles on each side.  I printed a cropped version of it, and added a candle.   I've always wanted to try to paint a lit candle. 
 Below is a picture of it in progress.  


Thanks for looking!
