Mary's Prayer and Praise in Watercolor
This piece is Mary's Prayer and Praise. Within each hexagon of the pattern, there are the following hidden meanings: 1) The flowers chosen are tulips and petunias. Tulips have the religious name Mary's Prayer as the flower looks like a cup pointed upward, always open to receiving the grace of God. Petunias were called Our Lady's Praise. 2) Luke 1:28 for when St. Gabriel greets Our Lady with, "Hail Mary, full of grace," is depicted by 1 golden drop of grace filling the tulip and 28 pieces creating an oval border. 3) 1 Samuel 2:1-10 is Hannah's Prayer in the Old Testament which has many similarities to Mary's prayer of praise in her Magnificat in the New Testament is shown with 1 white tulip, 2 tulip leaves and then the 10 pieces that create the tulip stem.
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.
