For the last three years, a Catholic school in Texas has contacted me to commission an Icon or Sacred Image to auction at a fundraiser dinner. This year they picked a beautiful Madonna and child. I searched everywhere for it’s proper title to learn more about the image’s history and symbolism. It was obvious that it was an Immaculate Heart of Mary, but did it have another title? I couldn’t find the image. I worked on the icon for several weeks and when I was just about finished I came across a copy of a very old print of the same image. I studied it very closely only to find a small cherub painted in the knot of the veil of Our Lady . What a sweet surprise. I was already finished with the painting but decided that I had to add it in. Look closely, you’ll see him hidden in the knot probably singing, “Holy, holy, holy”.
