Our Lady of Nature II

January 28, 2014


I have been working with one of the oil paintings I bought last week.

My intention has been to paint over/ cover  an old oil painting,
to re-use one of those I bought from a charity shop.

I mix “my” idea with the background landscape,

with the original version that someone has painted before.


I got an idea of The Virgin Mary,

the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I’m not surprised about the message She comes with:

This painting of the Holy Virgin Mary tells about the concern

over Mother Nature or Mother Earth.


Our consumerism has a huge impact on the environment

– all over the world.

This is no news.
The problem is that we can’t stop our consumption.

We don’t want to.
Our way of living and our attitudes are based on consumption.

Those spirits and angels that are protecting the Earth

are concerned about our behaviour:
We are destroying our planet.


In this painting,
a storm arises from the mountains and the waters will rise.
She warns us,
but I don’t know, if anyone is listening.



Immaculate Mother, to You do we plead.
To ask God, our Father, for help in our need.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!
We pray for our Country, the land of our birth;
We pray for all nations, that peace be on Earth!
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!
