Weekly Oil Paintings
by Sister Maresa Lilley, SND

Wash Day

14 x 11″ oil paint on artist board

Something for a child’s room, new baby, or simply for a smile.

Basket of Roses

8 x 10″ oil paint on canvas panel

In the actual painting, the yellows are more soft and subtle and the pinks are warmer than my camera can capture, even after much digital finessing. I liked the looseness of the flowers and worked for looseness with the paint.

Who Me?

10 x 8″ oil paint on canvas panel

Yes, little Bluebird of Happiness, you!

Verdant Pastures

8 x 10″ oil paint on canvas panel

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. In verdant pastures He gives me repose. (Ps. 23:1)

In Him My Rest

14 x 11″ oil paint on artist board

Psalm 62:5: “Yes, my soul, find rest in God.” Scroll below to see beginnings.

I am Sister Maresa Lilley, a member of the Sisters of Notre Dame, located in Chardon, Ohio, USA. For many years, I have enjoyed a passion that permits me to reflect upon simple reality with a brush in hand. To capture a simple essence on canvas and to discover inherent beauty is a daily immersion.
