Portrait of a New Saint

My husband and I are fortunate to have in our possession this beautiful painted portrait of Pope John Paul II, which was a gift from one of our daughters-in-law--who happens to be a college friend of the artist who created it, a talented young lady named Carrie Mitchell.
We loved it when we received it shortly after she married our son; but after yesterday's canonization ceremony in Rome, and the subject's official elevation to sainthood, it is even more precious to us.

If you'd like to learn more about the gifted artist behind this portrait of Saint JPII, a young woman who believes that art has the power "to express ultimate Beauty, God himself," you can read the full String of Pearls blog post here.
