Artist's Description

Acrylic and impasto medium on flat canvas board.

Many, many hours of work went into this. I wanted to recreate the image of the Black Madonna with my own interpretation. The most important aspect of my painting is to breathe new life into my work. I prayed as I worked, I spoke to Her and my heart beat with love and admiration. I shed tears of joy, sorrow, happiness, as my life continued on around this painting.

My only concern is that the way in which I painted Her eyelashes may be viewed as too modern. It was an idea I had that I just went with as I wanted to do something that would somehow enhance Her great beauty without overstepping it too much.

I am never more in tune with art and my subject as when I paint religious imagery. It’s just the depth of my faith and my heartbeat of devotion that is who I am which causes the grace of God to take over as I work.

May all who view this work be filled with Her grace and Her strength to overcome everything with the gift of rock solid faith.
