“Watercolor and Wonder: Shrines” by Mary Billingsley, M.F.A.
Each work begins with the gathering of significant objects for a still life or "stage set" depicting an aspect of Christ's life. Some of the compositional elements are obvious religious symbols while others, everyday found objects, indirectly evoke the subject and help to draw the viewer into the painting.
