Painted a Statue for My Prayer Table in the Convent

Mary 2 010Last Friday I got a plaster statue of Mary for $5.00 at a flea market. I probably would have never bought it, but it was big, about 2 feet tall, made in Mexico and was spray painted or air brushed. It was kinda ugly. But, I thought it might have potential. Today I didn’t have anything to do so I sanded some rough edges, spray painted it to get some dark on it and then went to school and painted it with acrylics. It is so large that it didn’t need fine details, just some character added. I think it turned out okay from how it started. I plan to use it on my prayer table at Sacred Heart.mary 22Mary 2 010Mary 1
