St. Veronica~Watercolor painting~20"X30"~Aruna Nitin Sarode

Merry Christmas and happy holidays friends. I thought it appropriate to share my painting of St. Veronica on this occasion.
 St. Veronica~Watercolor painting~20"X30"~Aruna Nitin Sarode
Her marble statue is at the St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. I was admiring the details on the fringes of her veil when I saw the face of Jesus on her veil. Then I read the brief narrative on the pedestal about her story. More than the face appearing on her veil, I was moved by her kindness, the beauty of human character in the midst of sacrilege. We need more kindness and compassion in this world.

My client had a picture of her porch and commissioned me to paint it. With my artistic licence, I added a handful of red geraniums to make it pop. Painting was just delivered today and she is happy how it turned out   Some work in progress pictures below -
