Chapel in the Woods

Here is a view of our mosaic at the Grotto in Portland. We have installed two smalti mosaic panels, and they will be blessed by Catholic priests on Oct 29 at 3 pm. We are expecting big crowds and, well a little rain. But the Lady will be shining in the house.
Artists: Mark Brody and Hector Hernandez

Guadalupe- Panel 2

On a very wet day, we took the 2nd panel out of the studio to see it in the light! All the glorious golds shine in the cloudy daylight. It’s only half the size of the large main panel.  Title: Miracle of the Roses.  We’re ready for installation next week!
