A Virgin a Day...12 mornings with Mary

Each year, Rebecca hosts A Virgin a Day
at her blog recuerda mi corazon 
the first 12 mornings of December are devoted to The Virgin Mary 
a picture, a thought, a prayer...
This is not a religious event, but
a way for all who love Mary to share her beauty, love and light.
For me, it is a spiritual practice,
the way I begin and end each day.
These 12 days of sharing always magnify Mary's glory
and fill me with more joy,
peace and gratitude.
Thank you Rebecca for bring us all together.
Everyone is welcome to join...
click the link and visit.
Or share your own Mary-Love.

Mother of Mercy
acrylic on birch in a rescued frame
I know I have shown this painting before,
but I love her...She is huge and glorious
and is there to greet you when you walk through the front door.

I also used her to make prayer cards.

Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy!

Love to you All♥

I can't remember where I copied this picture from...
I have it in my inspiration folder,
I love everything about it.
the arch
the peeling paint
the turquoise
and especially the disposition of Mary.
She seems world-weary to me.

  4. These are all wonderful! I've seen your work lots of times and you're so talented. Your Marys are especially special.

  5. Beautiful works of art, Lisa. I, too, like the photo with the peeling paint - it's so poignant.

  6. Lovely images,especially the second last.


  7. Beautiful as always. Your Mary's are always divine Lisa. Thank you and also thank you for posting about the puzzle. I couldn't leave a comment there. Glad to hear that the other Lisa D. has the puzzle. She contacted me. How fun! Happy Mary day to you.

  8. These are all gorgeous! The second to last is my favorite too. It's an honor to view them.

  9. the garden of love is filling with the beauty of you!!!
    thank you for your mary heart. which i see every time i look in your direction.
    if i point meri's "fortune arrows" in your direction it is to bring you along for holy week in san miguel this easter. yes. all arrows straight to your heart!

  10. I love them all for these reasons:
    1. her presence in the doorway denotes waiting for me
    2.she's deep in prayer
    3. her image is sweet, and I love the layering of this work
    4.unique portrayal of Sacred Heart of Mary who is sharing her Son's suffering

  11. So lovely. I especially love the wall plaque with the Hail Mary tucked in.

  12. It is lovely meeting again! I love that image of Mary in the arch - to me she seems filled with Mercy and Grace - strong in her meekness

  13. Your fourth day Mary is, indeed, world weary. But, she is still standing. Strong.

  14. So happy you are here sharing mornings with Mary. You are full of pure love and it shows in your art. LOVE it all!!

  15. I love all the images you have posted of Our Lady and was blown away when dozens upon dozens suddenly came up at part of the Priti Studio Art for the Soul. You are amazing!

  16. Day 5 is magnificent ~ love the prayer cards you created ~ Wonderful! ~ ( A Creative Harbor) artmusedog and Carol ^_^

  17. Love your offering for today, Lisa - beautiful painting of the Mother of Mercy.

  18. I love it. I meant to leave you a comment yesterdays - Her down cast head spoke to me so. Blessings.


  19. Another magnificent offering for us. Thank you!

  20. Love her downcast look as well. Wonderful. Happy Mary Day to you.

  21. So you have this wonderful image to greet you when you open your door? I love that you made your own prayer cards. doh! why have I not thought of this?

  22. The Mother of Mercy had mercy shown to Her by the artist, who placed Her in a rescued frame! :)

  23. Oh my - it has taken me until now to find your comment page, ok some days i must be a little slow!!! Love all your entries, enjoying your Mother of Mercy, may she look down on me and wake me up!

  24. Arms open wide to welcome you home with LOVE.

  25. She does look so world-weary but I can see why this is your favorite.

  26. So many gorgeous images you have created, Lisa!! I will savor them for a few more minutes before moving on to the next Mary posting. Thank you for sharing!!

  27. I love seeing all these beautiful images of Mary. It's so good to visit you again, Priti Lisa!
