The Rosary, In Paintings






   I recently finished a set of paintings that I am really excited about! They are, simply. scenes from Jesus' life and scenes to be meditated on during the praying of the Rosary. This set came about when I was contacted by writer and mother Michele Chronister at My Domestic Monastery. She is the editor of the book "Rosaries Aren't Just For Teething."

  She has been working on a companion book to that one, specifically for children to explain in simple terms the meditations of the Rosary. Divided into four different meditations to use on different days of the week, there are "four mysteries" of the rosary--- The Joyful Mysteries, The Sorrowful Mysteries, The Glorious Mysteries and the Luminous Mysteries.

  The book "Rosaries are GREAT for teething" will feature simple poems that will help children engage in the stories of Jesus' life and understanding the concept of praying the rosary. And my illustrations will accompany each chapter!

   You can look for this book coming out next month, and I'll have more information as the time gets closer!
   Have a great week!~

  3. Beautiful paintings you created for the children's rosary prayers! They are perfect for getting a snapshot of the main theme of the mystery. Children and adults are going to want to have this book just for the art!
