11×14″ oil paint on gessoed artist board; special commission

I was asked to do this commission of Mary the Mother of Jesus from a small pencil drawing on a holy card. Unfortunately, the artist is not named at all, but I reproduced the beautiful work in paint. No profit shall be made from this private transaction, however, I would love to give credit to the original master if only I knew.

Dear Ruth Ann,
Thank you very much; this painting demonstrates only my copying skills for the unknown artist’s beautiful work. I followed his/her drawing of the face as closely as I could. Sister Maresa
