Mother Mary Folk Art Style Painting

My second self-framed mini painting! This one is inspired by the Mexican folk art we saw so much of in Santa Fe. This piece is based on a scene I saw in the children's garden at a tiny rural Catholic church. Mary was played by a Barbie doll and her hair was blowing in the breeze from under her makeshift shawl. Something touched me in the scene—the sweetness and naivete, perhaps. I took a photograph and created a painting from that. Available now in my Etsy shop.
