Saturday:) Special Sanctuary Sketches

19 Sep

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.”

~Richard Bach


I have been finding great joy and peace during my visits to St. Gabriel’s for Adoration and meditative sketching in the Sanctuary. I started a sketch two weeks ago, but never got around to finishing it until this evening. It’s the stained glass window called, “The Visitation.”

Mary visits her cousin Elizabeth, both pregnant. Elizabeth carrying the baby John the Baptist who leaps in her womb when in the presence of Mary and her son Jesus, in Mary’s womb. “Blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.”
My finished pencil sketch. Now, to apply the awesome Artisto applications.
A few of my favorites.

      Thank you Maria. As you can tell, I enjoy the quiet time, but also the beautiful church is inspirational. A special holy place.
