This painting in Mixed-Media was painted for the Maria exhibit. I was inspired by a beautiful small painting by Rembrandt in the Maurits Huis Museum in the Hague entitled "Suzanna and the Elders". In this case Maria-Suzanna is not so sure she really would like the announcement made by the dove. The background was inspired by a Courbet landscapre. I love taking ideas of others and incorporating them in a new painting.


  1. I love this painting too. To me it looks like she is being attacked by the dove and is cringing away.

    1. I guess I achieved what I wanted. Yes, this young woman does not want to get pregnant by a bird. thanks, Joy.
