Product Description

Mother Teresa and Child
Media-Oil Painting
11" x 14" - $20




I volunteered to create a painting for a local school's auction. I had no idea what it would be, or when I would find time to create. So I trusted God to provide me with the inspiration and He did!

Mother Teresa would never let one child die in her care without experiencing love. If she saw a child so ill that it would likely die, she would simply love it until it died. As weak as the tiny babies would be, they still clutch their hands unto her garment!
I wanted to show the warmth of her great love. The focus is on the child's hand clutching to Mother Teresa, grasping for love!

This painting was created during an ice storm in January 2002. Losing our electricity, I painted it in a room dimly lit by a kerosene lamp. The wrinkles of Mother Teresa's face were etched in my mind. Her expression was of love and compassion. In only a few days, this work of love was completed. I was so inspired, I continued painting at my daughter’s house, where we were evacuated due to the loss of heat in our home. My three-year-old granddaughter pointed to the child in the painting and asked, "Is that Jesus?" She was onto something!

 Mother Teresa saw Jesus in the most "distressing disguise" of the poorest of poor. She would quietly bring love and care to those who needed it. Her instruction to all the helpers was to, ‘simply love the child’!
