Delight, Watercolor by Milessa

It’s not “newsday tuesday” yet?

So I just got this new app today to test my blogging of “newsday tuesday” while on the road or away from my studio. Hopefully this works great and I can add images and respond…and be creative!

In my last blog, I promised to work on something spiritual…so I am painting St. Catherine of Siena (1347-1380). She is a patron saint of Italy, born in Siena. She had first been buried near the Pantheon, in the cemetery of Santa Maria sopra Minerva. After many miracles were reported to have taken place at her grave, she was moved inside the Basilica of Santa Maria sopra Minerva. In 1970, Pope Paul VI gave Catherine the title of Doctor of the Church.  This title was also given to Saint Teresa of Avila. Interestingly, Saint Teresa Avila is one of the icons I painted for the Mt Carmel Hermitage Monastery alter.

Looking for something?

The best paintings create a story. My stories have happy endings.

Milessa was born a big city girl in a dry, desolate area of Texas where the only trees she saw were mesquite and the only things to climb was her horse. She remembers a lot of brown but that did not stop her from dreaming in beautiful, bold color. She paints in a playful and visual style.
