Hail, most loving Heart, Inflame me! Consume me in the Burning Fire of Thy Holy Love, 2008
Mixed media on canvas
I loved everything about this piece. Particularly the Sufjan Stevens-inspired title. It was created for a charity auction, and despite my husband's aggressive bidding, we were unable to return it to the loving home from which it came. I have always wanted to recreate it, along with a Sweetest Heart of Mary companion piece.
Materials: craft-store oval canvas, glitter, sequins, acrylic paint, Mod Podge, Aleene's tacky glue, clip art, and wrapping paper, that I now see has become some kind of collector's item.
