There are moments of grace, when one is given the inspiration and the ability to achieve the idea that was dreamed. Mary’s Sister was such a moment. Maybe all those times of plugging away at the most tedious and insignificant tasks to gain some kind of mastery or skill finally do pay off. Maybe God has moments of kindness, his way of encouraging the tired soul. It certainly didn’t hurt that Mary’s sister is a beautiful young woman. I am thankful for being lucky enough to make this art.
