I just finished up my "Revelation of the Virgin to the Artist" series! I am very happy with the paintings and the way that the project has grown. Each painting is titled as a different apparition of the virgin Mary. The series is intended to explore abstractions of traditional iconic paintings of these apparitions. Initially, i wanted the series to focus on Our Lady of Guadalupe and the images commonly associated with her. As the project matured I felt that instead of focusing on a single subject/context I should explore the phenomenon of her appearance to people around the world. More on this later. For now, here are the final pieces.
