"One truth: that the mind is below truth, not above it, and is bound, not to descant upon it, but to venerate it; that truth and falsehood are set before us for the trial of our hearts." ~Bl. John Henry Newman
Wow. I've never seen this one before! Interessante!
Very interesting indeed. I rather like it. After all all the medieval and renaissance paintings show Mary dressed in medieval or renaissance garb. Why not in a jumper dress and saddle shoes in the midst of suburbia. I love the lily as a potted plant on the doorstep! Curious that it throws a shadow on the angel's robe. The angel feels very solid.
And surely she is reading from Isaiah!!
Actually, she is reading from Isaiah! I was surprised I liked this one--I'm not usually fond of modern Mary's. But this painting seems reverent and different at the same time. Some of his other stuff was good, too.
