Prayers Of A Nun
Painting - Oil And Wax Paint With Collage On Cradle Board
The original oil and wax 8x8 painting is of a nun from the order of Missionaries of Charity founded by Mother Teresa. She is in prayer on her knees wearing the white habit with familiar blue trimming. The painting is impressionistic style with the nun figure. On the side is imbedded a quote from the New Testament of the Holy Bible. (Luke 11:9) "Ask and it will be given you:seek and you will find:knock and the door will be opened for you" . The Quote by Jesus Christ and recorded by St.Luke is a promise of answered prayer. The Sisters that have dedicated their lives to serve in the order founded by St Teresa find themselves surrounded by poverty, disease and impossible challenges each day. The act of prayer is a part of their daily lives and a source of strength in their exhausting mission. The painting here by Patty Donoghue visits the silent moment of an individual Nun holding on to the promises of Jesus Christ.
The painting here is colorful with rich blue tones, red, white and gold spattered in the textured background. The wax and oil medium provides texture and interest to the simple figurative subject. This piece has been scanned in high definition and can be reproduced in prints as large as 40x40. The square shape is ideal for both small or large spaces.
