I have been busy in the studio lately, but recently I felt the urge to stop working on holiday items and paint what was weighing on my heart. And what was on my heart has been on the hearts and minds of many of us– the humanitarian crisis of children being separated from their families at our southern borders.
In response to this, I began painting something comforting and connected— Our Lady of Guadalupe. When I finished her, I decided that I wanted to use the proceeds from her sale for good– and have decided to donate $50 from her purchase price to support those who are helping bring compassion and mercy to the situation— Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley. This worthy organization also hosts a respite center for travelers and refugees, offering meals, clothing, a chance to clean up and become oriented. You can read more about their wonderful work HERE.
And so, if you are interested in purchasing this painting and offering your aid along with gaining some art, visit my etsy shop. And I also encourage you to donate to Catholic Charities to help those in need.
Thank you so much~~
