I lived in Gibraltar for many years and this is an acrylic painting I did of the statue in the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes at the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Gibraltar.
The painting is done on art paper and the stars made individually with gold painted card and then attached to the halo.
The Cathedral was originally a Mosque as elaborate as the one at Cordoba, in Spain.
After the Christians drove the Moors from the Rock in 1462, the mosque was used as a church until the Catholic Kings, Ferdinand and Isabella, decreed that it be stripped of its Islamic past and extended. They donated bells and a clock for the 100ft tower, which remain to this day, and their Coat of Arms was placed in the courtyard where it can still be seen.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:

    Nice Dennis! It seems the more things change the more they remain the same. ~Sam

  • Thank you Sam :)
    I had several of my acrylic paintings of saints framed and hung in the Gibraltar Anglican cathedral for an exhibition. This was my favourite one :)
