Oil on stretched canvas.

Reference image from Damascus5

I have permission to paint an original work from the photo by Damascus5 but not to sell prints so unfortunately I can’t offer this piece for sale as prints.

I have tried to paint a sense of loving protection of Mary for Her Divine Son Jesus at a time when His life was being sought after.

    Beautiful work Tahnja I love the texture!

  • Hi Zeb! aww mate, thank you so much! I deliberately photographed it so that the texture could be seen well. Sometimes, in the wrong light, it won’t show so well which irritates me lol.

    What a wonderful rendition, you have shown a lot of maternal and caring love in this.

  • Thank you my friend! I’m learning to paint quickly which is good! This is one of the paintings I will be taking with me when I go to my audition for Artes Christi. No room for error!…and now I have plenty of time for the oil to dry before November so I’m really happy about that

    Oh what wonderful expression of emotion she has in her eyes! Such a strong emotion comes out of this at the viewer. At least for me I should say. Brava!
    Hugs, Ann

  • I’m back on track Ann! Some upsets are sorted out and my heart and mind are free to paint properly. This is one of the paintings I will be taking to my audition for the Catholic/Christian performing arts Company, Artes Christi. It now has plenty of time to dry until November and that’s important as the oil must be completely dry. The rain we’re having isn’t helping though! Been raining on and off for weeks!

    I see you in her face and a true expression of motherhood….really beautiful work Tahnja…

  • For some reason a lot of people see my image in the face of Mary no matter how many different ways I paint Her….it’s quite touching as so far, it hasn’t been intentional. Thank you so much Janis for your warm and touching comment.
