Acrylic painting Handmaid of the Lord by Denise Gracias

Handmaid of the Lord

2016-Acrylic-30" x 24" x 1.5"
A statue of Mary was outside a convent in Santo Domingo, Spain.  As I took the photo, the sky seemed to open up. It made me think of how Mary is human like us, but through willingness to cooperate with God's Grace, she is the Handmaid of the Lord.

Being so open and dependent on God, Her Savior, she sees herself as the humble handmaid of the Lord, hence the dark silhouette. Her openness and humility give God the capacity to fill her with all His Grace.

May this painting remind you of Mary’s generosity in giving herself to God, and inspire you to also be generous to God. Remember, He Cannot be outdone in generosity!!!
