St Therese of Lisieux Praying by natamon St Therese of Lisieux Praying by natamon


Greetings!

This is my latest icon artwork of the very popular St. Therese of Lisieux of France-also known as The Little Flower.
Her childlike way touched and continues to touch, the hearts of many, many people. She is a wonderful example of being trusting as a young child would, there are some wonderful pieces of information on her all over the web. Check her out!

:bulletred: The original and prints are available in my art shop--> here

The lighting in this great. It's hard to do lighting on a face from below and make it look peaceful, but you did.

Her relics (body in its casket) toured across the USA. I took my parents to the convent near Seattle, and we prayed, and thanked her for any and all of her interventions on our behalves. I still have a couple of petals from the roses spread on her casket in my Bible. I love this amazing servant of God dearly.

Your painting is absolutely beautiful. So expressive.

This is lovely. She looks so peaceful and it is where she found her strength in the midst of trials. Amazing that she was so young and had the maturity of an older contemplative.
