Weekly Oil Paintings
by Sister Maresa Lilley, SND

Feed My Sheep

6 x 8″ oil paint on canvas sheet

Jesus told Peter to feed his sheep (Jn. 21: 15-17)

Jays

6 x 8″ oil paint on canvas sheet

Blue jays are total eye-catchers in any season. I am told there is not much difference between male and female, except that the male is generally larger than the female. Interestingly, he feeds the baby and the mother when she stays on the nested hatchlings.

Have No Fear

6 x 8″ oil paint on canvas sheet

Isaiah 41:13 “Have no fear for I am the one who helps you.” These semi-whimsical shepherds and sheep seem to be desired by today’s audience. Hopefully, they speak the truth with a smile.

Home Sweet Home

8 x 8″ oil paint on cradled artist board

Today is the Feast of St. Nicholas when surprises of sweets appear in shoes and on tabletops and gingerbread abounds.

Mary, Woman of Compassion

8 x 8″ oil paint on cradled artist board

She knows and understands our frailties; Mother of compassion, pray for us.
