The red roses have been further developed and are near finish. The rose is a natural mandala, a “concentric configuration of geometric shapes,” and a symbol of peace.

    Your paintings are absolutely beautiful. Do you ever have art shows? Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful works of art.

      Dear Anne,
      Thank you for the surprise of your lovely words today. I have in the past carried and set up my artwork in various places, but lately my energies are going into an online store where I have about 100 paintings on display. ( Today I am excited to begin work on my small painting of Mary the Mother of God whose Birthday we celebrate in the Church on Sept. 8. You gave me new momentum!
      Sister Maresa
