Well, I figured while I'm waiting for her to get bigger, I can start on our own alphabet of saints so they will be well loved by the time she's ready for them. I had already painted some a few years ago for my big girls, but I figured it would be ok to have more than one for each letter, right? Since we have this poster in our school room, I am trying to paint one for every saint on the poster, but also allowing for a second one that might be more personal. I am no painter, but it's been fun and an exercise in creativity to try to figure it out. So far, we have...
St. Anne (holding baby Mary) with an Angel (singing, not yawning)
St. Brigid and St. Bernadette
St. Cecilia (Again, singing, not scared.)
St. Dominic (I think this is one of my favorites.)
St. Elizabeth of Hungary and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
St. Francis of Assisi
St. (not Blessed) Kateri (this is one I painted earlier for my big girls)
St. Lucy (also an early one)
St. Martin de Porres
(I don't like the shiny coat on this one and a few others.
I stopped using it and just used Modge Podge to seal them.)
St. Nicholas with bag and crozier
St. Rose of Lima
St. Therese of Liseux (this was also an early one)
I need some different colors to continue like silver for St. George. My big kids are having fun trying to figure out who am painting as I go along. These really are fun to figure out. How to represent a beloved heavenly helper in a few strokes of paint and marker.
