I just came across your moving and beautiful painting “Simeon and the Savior of the World.” The event you depict is the subject of the Gospel for Sunday, February 2nd. I think you have wonderfully captured Simeon’s longed-for encounter with the Messiah and his joy in knowing that God fulfills all of his promises. I am writing to ask if our parish may reproduce this painting on the cover of our weekly bulletin for February 2, 2014. We would attribute the work to you and include a thanks and reference to your web site. Thank you for your consideration and God bless you in your art.
