I was sensitive to the calmness of Mary, her availability, signified by these hands, her look. Her ability to keep events in her heart is an invitation in everyday life to cultivate an inner space that welcomes what happens every day, in calm moments or more eventful ones. This watercolor is associated with these lines from Sirach Sirach 35, 26.
His mercy is as welcome in times of distress
as clouds of rain during a drought.
