I was really inspired of a painting I observed over at the Arsenale by Eugene Von Bruenchenhein that was classified as untitled. I plan on one of my pieces having a wood canvas with a drawing of Mary and baby Jesus then over top of the image I would use Bruenchenhein's finger painting technique with vibrant colors. 

Similar style to this artwork.
Quick sketch of my idea.

A good beginning, Erin. Think about what source you will use for the Madonna and Child reference (may be a good opportunity for a master study?). Think about how using finger paint affects the way we would interpret this subject.

Drawing on wood (leaving some wood exposed) is a great way to embrace your material and actual texture. If you were to go this route, consider the woodgrain as a compositional element (line, shape, color). You will need to think about how to make the drawn image and finger painting unified.
