I pulled out my painting supplies and spent a few hours last night painting a few more saints. I had planned to make quite a few, but they take FOR.EV.ER!! You see, I am really not a very patient person, and I also tend to be a perfectionist, at least according to my husband, who, I am sure, is sick of hearing “Does this look ok??” every two minutes, while I attempt to paint these little saints. 😉 I also tend to get frustrated when they don’t turn out just like I had pictured in my mind… But that’s ok — It’s good for me! I just need to remember to use the opportunity to pray to the saints, and then maybe it would go a little smoother, right?!
That said, I only finished three saints: St. Nicholas, St. Rose, and St. Zita. St. Zita was the one that I really messed up on while painting. I meant to add a purple “palla” (a draped cloak similar to the toga) over her white tunic, but it turned out more like another tunic instead. Oh well… The girls were still excited to see her this morning!
Here are a few pictures:
Speaking of saints, Summer with the Saints begins today!!! I was so excited when my friend Marci told me she would be hosting it once again. She does such an AMAZING job, and my children had a wonderful time last year. I’m sure I’ll be back with a few photos to share. I hope you all have a great day!
