An experimental portrait in acrylic, I think? painted a while back.

[Self-] abandonment, surrender... not seen normally as good things, but so beautiful and so challenging (!!!) when done out of love, with the help of God.
So hard. One can only ogle people like our sweet Blessed Mother quite helplessly.

Fr. Michael Gaitely's little book, "33 Days to Morning Glory" is a great read. If we've got to walk this life why not walk with Mary our wise, gentle, and humble Mother?
