Oh the beauty of Fall. Who else is having a brown winter 🙋🏽♀️
I can still hear the rushing of the cars and the pops and sputters of the city buses going by this peaceful scene.
But the glory of this tree would make everything fade away.
The impossible reaching of the boughs stretched out to shade the little statue of the Holy Family; a canopy of God’s creation.
A hideaway from school and worries. A moments rest between events.
Seek out the stillness.
Even if the world around you is loud and cars are rushing by, open your eyes to the glory of Creation and turn to the innermost depths of your soul. Encounter the Holy Spirit there.
Rest in His presence.
Regardless of how this might look, I am not a portrait artist. I’ve never been formally trained in portraiture so I struggle with it at times and I’ve had to figure out a few things on my own. I’ve been practicing a lot with portraits lately because I have a large project that I’m working on in the new year that will require a variety of them. I see a lot of mistakes in this drawing but I also see a lot of improvements. Don’t go asking me to draw pictures of your kids now because I’m just not there yet and the task will stress me out! 😂😂 Anyway, enjoy this image of the Virgin Mary from Michelangelo’s Pieta. #thevirgin #queenmary #fullofgrace #pencildrawing
Met conservators not only study and conserve objects in the Museum’s collection, but also contribute to the preservation of our local cultural heritage. Since 2017, conservator Drew Anderson has been consulting on the conservation of stained-glass windows in Manhattan’s iconic Trinity Church, which forms part of a larger renovation project managed by Murphy Burnham & Buttrick Architects. The windows were designed by notable architect Richard Upjohn and fabricated by Abner Stephenson in 1846, and will be publicly accessible again in 2020 when the renovation is complete.

About last night - my heart is so full!!! I had a booth set up at the @stama_dallas Christmas Party & Market alongside the amazingly talented and incredibly kind @tesorobakingco ❤️ The amount of love and support I’ve received from this amazing group of women will stay with me forever. I am so thankful and just beyond humbled by the friendships I’ve made. My sweet Rosaries that come straight from my prayerful heart are going home to some very special people. And that’s just about the best gift I could ever ask for🎁🎄❤️🤶🏻 Merry Christmas!!
