Non Traditional Icons; Small Beaded Paintings

My mother, Loretta Goddard and I joined forces to create this project.  Loretta (mom) is an amazing writer, check out some of her work here and here.  The way she sees and reveres the world is a huge example to me.  I create these tiny paintings and she writes a companion piece about each saint.  This project is kind of endless and will probably just stop when one of us gets tired of doing what we love to do in this way.  Only the images are below, as space won't allow all of it.  If you click the links below each painting you can visit the page with the writings.  Also, when anyone purchases one from my Etsy shop they will receive the beautiful description along with the original painting.
