I was given some small, deep canvases and decided to use them for smaller portraits. One of Mary’s titles is the “New Eve” who through her Son, crushed the head of the serpent who had drawn the first Eve into evil.

The blues here are not true; the actual painting has more aqua or turquoise tones to the background colors.
