Our Lady and the Child Jesus share a tender moment in this painting. Mary gazes down with a look of pure love while Our Lord reaches up to put a wreath of roses on her head. Their eyes connect in a dramatic look of love that leaves us, the viewer, longing for a similar relationship with Our Lord.

Elisabetta Sirani is a fascinating woman, a painter from Bologna who started a school to train other women as artists. She herself was trained by her father and supported by a Count who was a family firmed and art critic, and was able to support herself, her parents, and her two siblings entirely with her art.

She died unexpectedly at only 27 years old, but by then had reportedly produced over 200 paintings professionally.


This alla prima study is part of my training arc for painting the Litany of Loretto Marian series, which I’ve begun to develop on my Patreon! You can find out more about it here.

No prints will be made of the master copy studies.

Painted on an archival panel; linen mounted on 3/8″ plywood. It cannot hang by itself, but will fit in most standard 5×7 frames.

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
