Here is a piece that came from praying about the Agony in the Garden and the Annunciation, inspired by the shifting liturgical calendar of this year. The Annunciation is normally celebrated on March 25; however, this year, March 25th is within Holy Week. So the Annunciation is moved to the first Monday after the octave of Easter (April 8th), and one of the days we celebrate during the last week of March is Holy Thursday. After realizing that, I kept being drawn in thanksgiving to Jesus’ prayer for God’s will during the Agony in the Garden, “He advanced a little and fell prostrate in prayer, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet, not as I will, but as you will,” (Matthew 36:39), and how beautifully his yes to God reminded me of Mary’s fiat, “And Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word,” (Luke 1:38). I wanted to paint a piece focusing on these so I chose the yellow and red specked St. John’s wort (religious name: Christ’s Bloody Sweat) and Madonna lilies (Annunciation Lily). A tiny, “fiat voluntas tua,” Latin for, “Thy will be done,” appears in the center. This was such a fun painting to work on, and I want to create more like it!

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. 

This paper and canvas matches Rose Harrington's commitment to deliver the best possible product.
