Giveaway: Print of St. Brigid


   The last day of January finds itself cold, gray and raining all day. I had big plans to work on some home improvement projects, but there just didnt end up being enough time to get it done. So instead, I'm snug inside and bringing you a treat!

   The Feast of St. Brigid comes tomorrow, February 1! Since I just completed my Brigid painting and got in some prints, i thought it would be fun to give one of them away! So--- if you'd like your own St. Brigid, you're in luck!

   Entering to win the 8x10" print (unframed, but it will come nicely packaged!) is easy--- just leave a comment on this post with a means to contact you. Tell me why you'd like Brigid--- or suggest another saint for me to paint! I feel a series coming on!

   And if you share this giveaway on facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. be sure to let me know, and you can enter your name again! Sound good?

   Sending you many blessings for The Feast of Saint Brigid!~

  2. My middle name is Brigid which I've come to learn is uncommon. Most girls with that name are spelled Bridget. In our family each of us celebrate our name days so I would love love love to have this print to celebrate my connection with her. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  9. Did you know St Brigid was a midwife? My wife is a doula and I'd like to get her a gift to remind her that what she does is amazing.

    Also, paint Bl. Olga of Alaska. She too was a midwife and is a patron for the sexually abused.

    I'll share this on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, too!

  10. Your St. Brigid print is just lovely! I think you should paint St. Elizabeth of Hungary. She is beautiful and underappreciated.

  18. I love your St. Brigid. I've always had a fondness for her because she was a princess and a slave. She didn't really fit perfectly in either world.

  19. Would LOVE to own St. Brigid! I'd love to see you paint Joan of Arc or St. Patrick or St. Francis of Assisi. I do so love my St. Nicholas that I got for Christmas. I think I'd rather not post my email address but you can message me on FB. xo

  20. I would love to own this lovely portrait of St. Brigid because she's my patron saint of the year. Every year my blog readers pick a saint for me to learn about and be my patron and St. Brigid was chosen for this year. As a hibernophile with some possible Irish roots (still digging through the family tree) it's been fun for me to learn about her.

    For future saints, I'd suggest Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati who seems to be gaining in popularity these days.... and is one of my personal favorites. :D

  21. I was just looking at this print in your shop earlier today! Perfect. We love St Brigid... I would suggest St Ita of Killeedy (sometimes called Deirdre) for another painting! She's called "the foster mother of the saints of Ireland," and is my daughter's patroness. :)

    (Bl. Olga of Alaska, too... like Jared suggested up there!^)

    1. When I converted to Orthodoxy I took Brendan as my patron. I recently just learned about St Oda, and how she was the foster mother of St Brendan for his early years!

  22. Saint Brigid is my patron saint, I chose Brigid as my confirmation name after reading about her and I feel an extra connection to her because of my Irish roots. Would love to see Saint Francis and Saint Therese! meliakatie@gmail.com

  27. Hello my name is Patrick, and a convert to Orthodoxy, and the owner of@theorthodoxjourneyhome on instagram. I am.absolutely obsessed with Irish history * which is pretty strange for.a Jamaican * and Saint Brigid has been an inspiration and had beautiful life. I would love to see her painting next to my icon of Saint Patrick.

  30. Hello Heather, I will be listening to this with our children today, The Life of Saint Brigid: Abbess of Kildare, written by my friend Jane G. Meyer: http://store.ancientfaith.com/the-life-of-saint-brigid-ebook/. (It looks like you can listen to an audio version here: http://www.ancientfaith.com/podcasts/grapevine/readings_from_under_the_grapevine_-_program_139 .) As I'm bombarded with suggestions of good books and good lives to present to my "Mighty Girl," I think the female saints are the "Mightiest of Girls." And I just read this yesterday: "As for the saints who are in the earth, They are the majestic ones in whom is all my delight." As for other saints, our children's names are celebrated on the Archangel Gabriel's feast day, and also Saint Lucia's feast day. I would like to see a St. Lucia done in the same style you've done St. Brigid (which would be different than the paintings you've done of oldest girls dressed up to celebrate the Lucia bride). Blessings to you!

  31. And Saint Nicholas, assisting the family of 3 daughters. :)

  32. Please consider painting Julian of Norwich. She is thought to have lost her family during the Black Plague and yet believed in a God of love rather than wrath. She is also typical painted with a cat.
    I remember her "mantra" often as I needed to be reminded that God is in control. "All will be well. All will be well. All will be well in the end". It's a simple but powerful prayer.

  33. Mark T. -I love St. Brigid because she is one of the patron saints of Ireland and I am Irish. Other saints to consider would be St. John Baptist la Salle, patron saint of educators. Others would be St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland. St. Andrew, patron saint of Scotland. St. Francis of Assisi or St. Mark the Evangelist, patron saint of Venice, Italy.

  34. Heather, Just shared your giveaway on my FB page "Children's Books that Matter." Hope some friends will stop by. Blessings!

  35. I love St. Brigid because she is my confirmation saint and we have a niece that died at 2 weeks old named Brigid, so I know she's another little Brigid that can intercede for us in heaven.

    I'd suggest St. Jude! Even though he's popular and his image appears a lot of places, they are often very "flat" and standard and I'd love to see the depth you'd give him.

  39. Oh yay! St. Brigid is my conformation saint :) I grew up with stories of St. Brigid, Mystical Midwife of Christ, and loved her connection to weaving (the St. Brigid's cross woven of rushes), cows, and chickens :)
    Wishing you a very happy feast of St. Brigid!

  45. So beautiful! I'm a fan of all your pieces and was excited to see this latest one. I've been to Ireland 5 times as it is one of my favorite places on earth and St. Brigid has been one of my faves for years even before I was Catholic.

  55. She is gorgeous!! I see about 10 paintings I'd love to buy in your shop. Wonderful work!

    It would be great to see your take on St John, St Valentine, St Patrick, St Michael, and St Martin. I know a lot of mamas in the Waldorf homeschooling community that would be very interested. Such beautiful work!!

  56. I'm sure this has already come and gone, but I just discovered your beautiful artwork today for the first time. My daughter's patron saint is St Brigid, and she is a budding artist herself (age 12). She would spend all day drawing and painting if she could! I can't wait to show her your artwork when she wakes up tomorrow.
