"Mother of mercy and compassion
the one we turn to in time of need.
Compassion toward oneself fosters creativity:
she reminds us to be gentle with ourselves."

  4. I love these hand drawn images of Mary. I never tire of them, and each speaks from the heart of the person creating it. Very nice.

    Peace

  9. Somehow, Gemma, you always make the light shine through. I think it must be the love in your heart that I know is there. xo

  11. She is oh so beautiful. I always say I am not a real artist because I don't draw, but I guess I should diss myself or compare. Thanks for your art today.

  12. Being gentle with ourselves is often so much more difficult than being gentle with others. Why is that?

  13. There is the hint of African here with her delicate eyes and full lips. The stylized halo a hover sun. Very beautiful, Gemma.
