The Litany of Loreto is the source for the name of this image of Mary. I think of Christians suffering persecution in our day; she is compassionate mother, sister, intercessor for us all.

One of the many titles of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is “Spiritual Vessel” from the Litany of Loreto. I like to think of her as that hollow reed of God through which He breathed His music of grace for the world. (A thought gained from  author Caryll Houselander.)

Small seascapes in a white mat make an attractive ‘get away’ in the dead of winter.

I have only one young starling left of birds in my ‘shop’ Paintgrace, so I went after the happy flutterers with black caps to restock. I never tire of the tuxedoed chickadees.

A very youthful Jesus. When I was a child, Jesus was way older than me; now He is way younger.

Out my window is the grip of winter. No matter how cold it gets, and though this is not a snow scene, nature’s splendors always engage.

Recently, I have sold a few of these Jesus images, so I need to concentrate on some more ethnic possibilities. People sometimes like to see a Jesus similar to their heritage. What is great for the artist is that no one today knows what Jesus really looked like. It is awesome to imagine.
