I have painted some more modern day ‘icons’ of Jesus; this one seems to speak Mt. 3:15 when Jesus says to his cousin John who was refusing to baptize him, “Let it be so for now…”
This is the second daisy painting I did for a customer, the one not chosen, so eventually it will go on my store: www.etsy.com/shop/paintgrace
Recently, I was asked to do a small painting of daisies only. So I did a couple of samples for the customer to choose. Of the two, this is the one preferred. I will show the alternate next.
For the time being, this is the last of the 12 Fruits of the Holy Spirit, in angel, star, and dance mode.
Recently I was asked to paint a scene for a book on New Testament figures, being composed by one of our Sisters. Dorcas was a seamstress and follower of Jesus who is mentioned in the New Testament, the Acts of the Apostles. Here is an imagined version on canvas.
Astute with her catechism and the things of God, Julie was permitted at an earlier age than the required 13 to make her First Communion. This will be the final painting for the booklet on the early life of St. Julie Billiart.
Julie loved to teach the nearby children about God. Later, even adults joined her catechism classes in the fields.
When young Julie was in school, she was greatly inspired by her catechism lessons.
The above is another page in the story of Julie Billiart’s early life. Julie’s mother taught her to bring flowers for the statue of Mary in the church.
I am continuing to show the pages of a future children’s book on St. Julie Billiart’s early life. She found it difficult to leave a game that she was involved in. The above may be an illustration in a booklet for young children.
