Saint Lucy


I did this in my figure drawing class. The art school I attend is in general pretty deconstructionist, but I'm lucky to have a life drawing teacher who emphasizes narrative meaning, and doesn't scoff at Christian art.

Mary, your picture of St. Lucy is beautiful and the imagery is powerful. I went to a very liberal art school, but I think they would have accepted your art because of what they would consider "weirdness," or a certain surrealism, but which basically amounts to the powerful imagery, meaning, and energy in it.

Awesome St. Lucy!

Interesting that it's from a life drawing class, though. Very much not what I'd have thought if that were the preface.

Thank you both very much!

The model was not attired like that, DN, but my teacher encourages us to add things from the imagination. :)

I have pilfered your Saint Lucy and will either 1.) say "thank you" or 2.) take it down if you don't approve!
