Reading about the Life of Jesus reveals alot about the life of His mother. Many of the visually historic portrayals of Mary, represent her as humble, prayerfulI, and divinely inspired. I wanted a painting a little different than I had ever recalled having seen. I wanted an egnimatic portrayl of Mary: A Mother with bright, youthful eyes, spirited and unafraid, as she must have been to fulfill such a heavenly request.
