The Holy Family in Blue collection depicts each member of the Holy Family's faith and surrender to the will of the Lord.
LORD JESUS CHRIST: "And he said, 'Abba, Father, all things are possible to thee; remove this cup from me; yet not what I will, but what thou wilt,'" Mark 14:36. To represent Jesus' complete surrender to offering himself as the fourth cup for our salvation, there are 14 poppies and 36 leaves for Mark 14:36. The poppy flower has a religious name of Christ's Blood Drops.
OUR LADY OF THE ANNUNCIATION: "And Mary said, 'Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word,' And the angel departed from her," Luke 1:38. To represent the Blessed Virgin Mary's complete surrender in her fiat in Luke 1:38 at the Annunciation, there is one lily blossom and 38 leaves. The Madonna Lily has the religious name of Annunciation Lily.
SAINT JOSEPH, PROTECTOR OF THE HOLY FAMILY: "And he rose and took the child and his mother by night, and departed to Egypt," Matthew 2:14. To represent Saint Joseph's faith in his listening to the angel of the Lord's warning in the Gospel of Matthew, this hollyhock stalk has two flowers and fourteen buds. Legend has it that when it came time for the Virgin Mary to be betrothed, a sign was sent from God to show which unwed man from the House of David would be the one designated by God to marry her. St. Joseph's staff bloomed! The hollyhock flower has the religious name of St. Joseph’s Staff or St. Joseph’s Flower.
After I paint or hand letter the art, I digitize them and have them printed on the following substrates:
- 100 lb white linen paper for an elegant and high quality finish.
- high-quality, archival grade, acid-free, 100% cotton rag, 21 mil, 340gsm cold press watercolor paper with a bright white, textured surface.
- 230 gsm neutral-white, archival matte paper.
- Stretched canvas on .75in pine wood stretchers is available for pieces size 8x11in and up. The canvas used is thick archival grade, poly-cotton blend canvas to provide greater durability, and the canvas is pH neutral and acid free so it will not yellow over time
Your print is packaged in a sturdy cardboard mailer or tube to ensure it is delivered safely to your door. Frames and props are not included in your purchase.
