I don’t talk about this as much as I should, so I wanted to explain why my paintings of Mary have a face that is left "unfinished". The subject of the Blessed Mother in my art has been such an incredible journey. Although it continues to evolve over time, I’m forever grateful for how many of you have followed along with me and who will read this. It means so much!

My paintings, like my art, has grown with me. For those of you who may not know the story behind my paintings of Mary, I began my drawings of Her at a time in my life when I needed my faith most. Art and my faith became my outlet.  I found myself drawing the one whom I prayed to the most! From there, it evolved to paintings and much more!

I remember the first time I painted Mary, I was so frusturated when I tried painting her face. After several attempts, I finally began to realize, "I can't paint her face." I realized that 

I could never capture the true essence of her beauty. We all envison the Blessed Mother to 

be of great beauty. I knew I could never capture Her beauty on a canvas. Leaving Her face "unfinished" leaves for interpretation. After all,  it's been said,  

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

I feel as though the people who have followed my artistic journey are truly friends. I love the community we’ve created, so it feels right to share something so special to me with you. I want to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for being

with me throughout this journey of life! 

XOXO, Kaitlin
