Throughout the world, there are many interpretations of Mother Mary. Mine was inspired by the art room of teacher Sue Silverstein at Bishop Maginn High School.
A statue of Mother Mary stands on the counter in Sue’s classroom among the paint and pencils, not separate from the class, but a part of it. It was that statue, being in that nourishing creative space, that inspired my idea for Mother Mary.
Now that Bishop Maginn is closed, my original fiber painting of Mother Mary will hang in Sue’s new classroom at Bishop Gibbons. (Mother Mary was generously donated to Sue by one of the readers of my blog)
My vision of Mother Mary holds paintbrushes in her hands. I’ve come to see her as Mother Mary for all of us who create in one way or another.
This morning I picked up my postcards of Mother Mary at A&M Printers in town. Each postcard is 4″x6″ and they come in packs of six. They’re $12 including shipping. You can buy them in my Etsy Shop, just click here.
And if you don’t like using Etsy, you can email me at [email protected]. I take checks, PayPal and Venmo.
