A new icon of Blessed Laura Vicuña


A commission of Blessed Laura Vicuña for @catherineaddington!

This posed an interesting challenge but I am sataisfied with the results. I recommend reading her story—she was a very inspiring girl who I hope makes it to canonization!

I am so grateful for @baglette’s beautiful portrait of Bl. Laura, who has become one of my closest friends in heaven. (If you don’t already know her story, I wrote about her here.) She did such an amazing job capturing her likeness—there’s only one known photo of her, and it was discovered after many artists had already portrayed her as whiter and older than she was. Thank you @baglette​ for helping me to pray with this friend of mine!

Bl. Laura, pray for us!
