Backdrop painting

This was a background that I painted in ten or eleven days, not sure which, for a photographer in Nashville who is a friend of mine. He was shooting a great Christian artist, who's music I happen to really love and needed this backdrop to be painted. I did it in water-based oils and hoped that it'd be dry enough for him to complete his task. We gave it three days drying time and I was really hoping it wouldn't ruin anyone's clothes should they get anywhere near the canvas :) This was sent to me as the test shot. 

The album is coming out in March - Jason Gray - Love Will Have The Final Word.
