Children's Book Illustrations

This are illustrations I created this month for author Graciano Matos, who wrote a story for his little granddaughter.

Recent Mary Magdalene research presented Mary Magdalene as a Artemis/Queen Bee, and when Graciano mentioned the book was about a little bee… I could not say no. 

Take a look!

Infinite Mercy

Jasmine with Infinite Mercy, Oil on Canvas, 36" x 24", 2014.
This piece was commissioned by Jasmine Gomez for her office in her new job at the New York Archdioceses.  It was a pleasure to paint since I just had to make my own image bigger. I like the idea of reworking an image to work with someone's specific needs. It is a way to serve through art.

The best part was Jasmine's big smile when she saw the piece!
