Recently I completed a new painting of Mary and Jesus for Mary Garden Showers. It is a beautiful ministry which helps mothers in crisis pregnancies. There are prints available on my site here all proceeds go to Mary Garden Showers. The framed original painting will be auctioned off at my booth during the Columbus Catholic Women's Conference this February.I wanted to show Mary and Jesus in an affectionate moment, mother and baby playing together quietly. Jesus is meant to look like He is crowning her with flowers, representing what will come when they are both in heaven. But mostly I hoped to show Mary as a human mother in love with her child, awed by His beauty and innocence.
