"Mary Cradling Jesus"

I have had a passion for Michelangelo’s Pieta for as long as I can remember. My mother displayed a statue of the Pieta on our piano when I was young. When I studied art history in college, the image leaped off the page!! From that moment I knew that some day I would get to see this masterpiece! I have been to Rome on several occasions and it always takes my breath away! I have wanted to draw my own version of the Pieta for several years and waited on the Lord to lay it on my heart!

I prayed and asked God what He wanted me to draw for the ladies at the "Wonderful Women of God" Retreat on April 9, 2011 at the Lindenwood Retreat & Conference Center.

I had a vision of the Blessed Mother cradling our Savior, something every mother understands. The music and image of the pieta portray the special bond between mother and child. Mary, our sorrowful mother, had her heart pierced as she held her Son’s broken body. The tenderness of her face captures the look of a mother who has experienced a great loss. This piece helps all of us understand the true meaning of the Passion through the eyes of a mother. When life gets too tough, Mary teaches us how to endure and say "Let it be."
