Prayer




"Prayer"
Altoid tin container by Janie Mills for display or to cradle a dearly loved rosary.

 I love this depiction of a Madonna, a Mother, a Woman in quiet communication with her maker. Simple text with the word "Prayer" is added. A tiny pink candle lights the way. It was perfectly sized in it's partial use when taken out of an old box of birthday candles. I wonder what stories it could tell? 
See this link on how it was made:

Love Springs Eternal

May you be surprised at finding beauty in the midst of ruin.


Day 7 of "A Virgin a Day" hosted by artist, Rebecca Brooks at:
recuerda mi corazon
I created this nicho using a vintage Italian Holy card of a Madonna in adoration of a rose that appears to have sprung up in the midst of nothing. I couldn't keep from thinking about how many times I have been surprised at finding beauty in the midst of what might have been viewed as ruins or despair.
