I'm back from New York City (stay tuned for photos), and am easing my way back into the old routines. As I regain my posting groove, I'm taking a few minutes to answer a question posed by my blogging friend Jena as part of a meme.
What would your version of the Madonna look like?
This is a bit of a cheat, but I drew a version of the Pietà a few months back that I think best captures my artistic conception of the Madonna. It is in the general form of a tear, but if you look closely you should be able to make out the figures of mother and adult child intertwined in shared suffering. I hope it also depicts a strength of selfless comforting in the face of great sorrow.
