St Joseph and Child Jesus Icon

Icon St Joseph

I have just completed this Icon of St Joseph and the Child Jesus, March 2014.
Tomorrow is the feast day of  St Joseph - 19 March.
He is our most wonderful advocate.
I can recommend his protection and help in any situation.
Just ask him and he will assist what ever the need.
I always give thanks and praise to the Lord the patronage and help of St Joseph.
Jesus Mary and Joseph I give you my heart and my soul.

New Icon of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop
This is a new Icon of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop which I have completed in March 2014.
The image bears the wattle to symbolize the oneness of St Mary with the people and land of Australia.
The wagon wheel represents the vast amount of travel she did in Australia, New Zealand and the world.
The movement in her veil reveals her energy in educating and caring for the poor.
Her right hand is outstretched in service and love. Her left hand is folded in prayer in honour of the most Holy Cross of Jesus Christ - Redeemer and Saviour.
The Cathedral symbolizes the love for the Church which Mary had always in her heart.
The Icon is in tempera paints and gold leaf.
