Our Lady and Memorial Day

Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of my favorite images. She makes a frequent appearance here in the Southwest in churches as well as art displays. I was unfamiliar with her story when we first moved here and purchased this painting. It was only when our cousin visited and told us she liked our painting of Our Lady that I learned a little about her.


Since then I have been drawn to her image and have also featured it in some of my creations like the Oglala necklace below.



Her sweet image seems a good one as we find ourselves pausing tomorrow to reflect on the many sacrifices made by our service men and women.
