This Immaculate Heart of Mary painted paper collage was my way of showing honor to the uniqueness, complexity and beauty of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The painted papers in bold colors and hand-wrought patterns that are precisely and lovingly pieced together represent the fact that Our Lady is anything but common! This piece was my "example" to show a group of 1st graders for their own cut paper mosaic project that they were about to create for their school auction. I wanted them to see the many possibilities!
