Luminous Sketch


Image © 2012 Gregory Watson

Pencil Sketch, 5" x 8 1/2".
Melissa suggested I draw a picture of two hands holding a Rosary. Always happy to oblige my wonderful wife, and to express my devotion to the Rosary, this was the result. I thought it would be an interesting effect to subtly make the Crucifix of the rosary the light-source of the image, representing that Christ is our Light, the source of all grace and the focus of this beautiful form of prayer.

The title, Luminous, reflects this trick of the lighting, as well as alluding to the Luminous Mysteries which Blessed Pope John Paul II added to the Rosary in 2002. As we contemplate the Mysteries of Christ's life with Mary, His Mother, we will be drawn closer to His marvellous Light and be enabled to share that Light with the world around us.
The original sketch is still available, and prints of the image are for sale. Please email doubting-thomist@hotmail.com to order Prints.
