A Virgin a Day is the title of this Meme Project. It is a tribute to Our Lady of Guadalupe. The plan is to post about The Blessed Virgin Mary for twelve days, ending on December 12th, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe. To participate, see Rebecca’s recuerdo mi corazon blog. There, you will get more definition and instructions as well as see other’s submissions.
You can't imagine how bummed out I am that I have to leave town right in the middle of all this Virgin business that's going on. But I must. I will post a photo of an original art piece I have today, and will pick up where I left off when I return. I won't be back until next week, probably by Tuesday, but I'll get Virgin a Day posts in for the last 6 days of this wonderful Meme Project. Please make your way back here, and to the others. I have some excitement planned.
As I will throughout the entire exercise, I devote these posts to my Mother, Carmelina Rosa Caruso Spado, who dearly loved The Blessed Virgin Mary in any form she appeared.
For today, Day 2 of twelve, I present a print of a painting I have of Nuestra Senora del Camino, Our Lady of the Way.
|A print of a painting by Francesca I. de Garcia C|
A brief story, I purchased this piece for my Mother many years ago while I was in the small town of La Mesilla, NM, near Las Cruces. That's the first time I met Francesca, the artist. I have returned a number of times and plan on seeing her again this Winter as I travel to New Mexico.
When my Mother passed, I asked that I could have this artist's rendition back for my own collection and my request was granted by my brother and sister.
Peace to All
