See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

March is the month of St. Joseph

What I'm up to.
.
I'm working on my own version of a Cuzco-style retablo of St. Joseph and the Child Jesus - hopefully I will finish it tomorrow.  I'm not sure I like it, it is certainly not as nice as the one shown here - I will title it St. Joseph, Protector of Carmel, with the Infant Jesus
