April 4th, 2011: Therese's Eye, Color Added, And A Bit of Emo Mixed With Horse

So it has been a while since I've posted. I did warn you that I would be gone about a week. But I can't deny that I was home allll this past weekend and did not post. I was busy mind you: I was adding color to my Passion painting below. Here is a bit of it:

This is the only section of it that I am happy with, and so it is the only part I will show you right now. Ugh. Why do these things never turn out as planned!?!? But anyway, the entire painting is colorized, but  most of it needs some major reworking before it is presentable. I worked on my anatomy DVDs this weekend as well:

Yes I know, I spelt "humerus" incorrectly (I like saying "spelt" better than "spelled" for some reason). I know right, SUCH an exciting sketch! But I chose this one because you can at least tell sorta that it is the humerus bone of the arm. The mess of lines on the top is the clavicle. Yes, I learned TWO words today: humerus, and clavicle.
     I also drew an emo girl (I was wanting to do a gothic-like victorian-ish drawing from either Jane Eyre or Phantom of the Opera, but my brain was so dead that I couldn't remember a scene, nor focus enough to read one). To the left of her is a quick crooked sketch based off St. Therese's eye, and to the right is a little horse. I wanted to draw a mouse, but some how a horse came out instead. Go figure.

While I am on St. Therese, I think I will put a quote by her yet again. Yes, I am rather fond of her.
      ...... Actually I changed my mind. Fulton Sheen has the quote of the day!

Broken things are precious. We eat broken bread because we share in the death of Our Lord and his broken life. Broken flowers give perfume. Broken inscence is used in adoration. A broken ship saved Paul and many other pssengers on their way to Rome. Sometimes the only way the good Lord can get into some hearts is to break them. - Fulton Sheen.


  1. I really like the top picture :)

  2. I appreciated the Fulton Sheen quote, Mary, and all of the art work is gorgeous, as usual. Saw the Cliffs of Moher today. They were almost on par with the mountain and the hermitage in Assisi.

  3. Thanks so much! Yes, the others are kinda just nonsense fillers to show that I was up to something. ;) But I do like how the color turned out on that section of them painting....

  4. Emily! Hi! I love you! AND YES! Cliff of Moher! Ahh! <3 You were SO close to Doolin there! The little fishing village where part of my heart was left! Oh the cliffs.... Oh Ireland....

  5. Hey Mary, I was showing a couple people your painting of the Divine Mercy Christ, with Mary, Augustine, and Margaret, and they were wondering if you might have any prints of it that would be available for sale. I know it's a painting, but is there any possibility?
    P.S. Brian was very impressed, and was "encouraging" art school. ;-)

  6. Um, well I spose there's always the possibility that I could. :) I'd have to ask Fr. Ben, it's his painting, but something can probably be done.
    And tell Brian thanks. It's always good to be encouraged.... so many times one is discouraged instead.
