A Painting Within a Painting

I recently had an idea for a painting, I thought it might be interesting to paint people looking at a painting, so I am currently working out this idea.  I'm planning to do a few of these, and they will have a lot of religious symbols and imagery.  This first one is a sort of test painting to see if this idea works.  I am using a painting from last semester as the main painting that the people are reacting to.  Here's what it looks like so far.
Oil on canvas
Music - Devil in a Woodpile, Hillstomp, Elba, David Bazan and Dan Auerbach
I'm planning on adding sculptural elements and possibly some collage to these paintings.  I'm also thinking about projecting a film onto one of the paintings...who knows, we'll see how it goes.
