Do You Know This Painting?
Inspired by The Little Way, I wanted to find out something about this picture. I brought this back from my grandmother's old house but I don't know what it is called. I have to apologize for whatever glare might be on it, we have so many windows that it is almost impossible to not have a reflection. This is obviously a print but I liked it so it hangs in the hallway. I started looking around and found that we have quite a few religious objects. One of my favorites is the trio of angels I found many years ago on sale. They have pounded copper wings, fabric gowns and ceramic heads.
I picked up the windowsill Marys at a church rummage sale. They hadn't been selected by the end of the day, neither had the plastic statues in the other window. I felt so badly for them that I made sure I picked them up when it was a $1 bag time.
The other two wooden angels were from my grandmother's house as were the two ceramic Marys on the dining table.
The crucifix was my husband's first communion gift. I'm not sure where we picked up The Holy Water fount but you can see how hard our water is!
Our Lady of Guadalupe sits over our couch in the living room. It goes very well with the paint color that I chose after finding a pretty fall leaf. The intensity changes with the sun, ranging from a deep pumpkin to a yellow orange. Room color is a fairly new thing to me and we went all out. A pumpkin color for the living room and burgundy in the dining room. If my husband had his way every room would look like a Mexican restaurant. (He won't get his way). He hates the nice blue I painted Sean's old room, which would have been pink had I known Taylor would be in there soon.
