The Madonna Folk Icon Painting For Today
“To be at one with God is to be at peace ... peace is to be found only within, and unless one finds it there he will never find it at all. Peace lies not in the external world. It lies within one's own soul.”
~ Ralph Waldo Trine
Artist: Wendy Ryan
Title: Found Within
Medium: Acrylic and Metallics on Wooden Ply Cross
Size: 8 X 11
20 X 28 cm
I've painted this 8 x 11 inch wooden cross in acrylics and burnished gold metallics. I've used plenty of texture to create the Celtic braid that surrounds the Madonna. She sends the message of peace as she holds two doves in her outstretched arms. Her rich red and black robes are embellished with a tiny sparkling Swarovski crystal. It has been signed, dated and sealed. Your icon arrives ready to hang.
