Weeping Madonna Icon

Weeping Madonna Icon  - Painting number 77
Oil Painting on Canvas 2.5x3.5 inches.

So what's this miniature Icon?
The Virgin Mary crying, her eyes blinded by tears of grief. 
Such pain in her heart.

Below is the sketch I did in Photoshop to practice before attempting the miniature icon above. 
If you zoom into the sketch she has perfect little tears. Obviously I couldn't add these to the miniature icon above as the tears are only a fraction of a millimetre wide in the actual painting.
Thinking therefore of painting a larger version.
