Description

Caritas, 2013

Ink on vellum, original 60×60″

 

The original work, Caritas, was painted by hand with a tiny paintbrush without the assistance of rulers of any kind. I made it during a silent retreat while living at the Art Monastery in Labro, Italy. The Artmonks who lived there yearround brought in two Jesuit priests to lead us in a week of silently contemplating monastic rule. We were engaging in this study in order to further develop the Art Monastery’s own monastic rule.

It was a powerful week for me and for hours each day, after studying the Rule of St Benedict, I would paint with that in my heart. One of the words that came up quite a lot was Caritas, which I translate as community. This painting is about the experience of living in community, intentionally and aiming the collective life at higher ideals.

Our oversized Weekender Tote is perfect for your weekend at the beach or in town. The wide-mouthed, durable bag holds a generous amount of personal items and is easily held by its thick rope handles.
