  2. The Crucifixion - Artist Nikki Blinston

    Posted on

    In 2001 I painted 'The Crucifixion' as a gift to the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, based in the Bronx,  New York. The piece was inspired by original illuminations, painted in the 15th century, which are rich in symbolism, seeped in spirituality and tradition. The religious images I have been commissioned to paint all refer to an iconic style, with a twist of 'Nikki'. I do not follow the tradition of using tempera paint, however I do ensure I am surrounded with prayer and inspiration as all images of God, His Blessed Mother, His Angels and His Saints are a glimpse of heaven, the paintings themselves should be a prayer, an aid to deepening spirituality. My spiritual paintings are, I hope and pray an inspiration to others. I feel blessed the Lord  has chosen and trusted me to portray Him and all who glorify Him.

    Posted on

    Lets face it ... life is complicated and messy - some may say full of knots ... some may think these knots are determined and stuck in their lives - that they are undoable .... Think again! Our Blessed Mother is on the case ...

    What Knots you ask?

    The knots in our lives are endless and some we may knot even know about. Marriage troubles; illness; loneliness; money worries; family feuds; unemployment; worries of all kinds.
