These works developed from an acquisition of de-accessioned Victorian religious books from Community of St. John Baptist, a historic convent in Mendham, NJ, where for years I led painting retreats. They include instructions for the life of religious women, meditations for the liturgical calendar, and exegesis on sacred texts. I have been slowly deconstructing the books, digesting the contents, often distressingly dated especially around the role of women, or contrastingly- poetic, compassionate, and insightful.
