Blessed Jesus - Mosaic in the Duomo - Monreale by skarzynscy


Happy Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe!

“Jesus answered, ‘My kingship is not of this world; if my kingship were of this world, my servants would fight, that I might not be handed over to the Jews; but my kingship is not from this world.’ Pilate said to him, ‘So you are a king?’ Jesus answered, ‘You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I have come into this world, to bear witness to the truth. Every one who is of the truth hears my voice.’” (John 18:36-37)

I haven’t updated my journal in months, so I thought it was about time, especially since this Feast marks the close of the liturgical year and the approach of the Advent season. So…well, where do I start? It’s been quite a busy year. I’m still in college (and it looks like I’ll be in college for 2 and half more years. :faint: Gah….) and right now I’m taking classes for an Art degree. I’m also taking Latin (YAY! :excited: ) which I’ve been wanting to take for forever. So that’s exciting. I’ve been reading a lot of books too (War and Peace was the big one, that took me about a month), made some money working at my summer job, transferred to a new university (which depleted all the money I made during the summer and more :( ) and I have been getting some art and commissions done here and there as well. And….I think that pretty much sums up my life. Terribly exciting stuff, I know. ;-)

Oh, and if you all could spare some prayers, I’m having some vision/headache (perhaps migraine) issues which have been making it difficult for me to get much art done. This journal will have to be pretty short because of that (though I feel like I owe you guys a long one). I'm gonna try and get an eye appointment sometime this week, but in the meantime I'll just have to power-through these headaches. ;-) So, any prayers would be appreciated! Thank you! And thank you guys for being such faithful watchers! I’ll try an update the journal more frequently, and maybe I’ll even get around to writing that journal about my Rome trip that I promised (spoiler: it was pretty awesome. I love Europe. YAY OLD THINGS!)

New art e-mail address:
:rose: Please contact me at this address if you’d like to request a commission or if you’d like to order prints. Or you can send me a note.

How to Order Prints:
Send me a note/e-mail that:
:bulletblack: Indicates exactly what picture(s) you want (preferably a link to the picture that I made, since, for example, saying that you’d like “Our Lady of Guadalupe” when I have four different versions could lead to rather embarrassing mix-ups).
:bulletblack: Indicates the size and number of the print(s) you want.
:bulletblack: Sends me your address (or whatever address you want me to send it to).
:bulletblack: (And if applicable) gives me the date when you need it by so I can make it a priority.

Then I will reply with my address and the amount owed for the purchase of the requested prints. Then you can send me a check for the amount, and once I have received the check and it has cleared, I will send the prints your way. If you decide to cancel an order, let me know as soon as possible. I usually take a long time about cashing my checks anyway, so you’d probably be fine. ;-)

Print Prices:
Shipping: $4.00 (except for Wallet, I can fit those in an envelope, so only $0.50 for postage)

2.5 x 3.5 (Wallet) - $1.00
4x6 - $5.00
4x8 - $7.00
5x7 - $8.00
6x8 - $8.00

Shipping: $8.00

11x14 - $35.00
12x18 - $50.00
8x20 - $50.00
16x20 - $65.00
18x20 - $90.00
20x30 - $110.00
24x36 - $150.00

Shipping covers the costs of purchasing the container (shipping tubes for the bigger ones) and mailers in which to ship your item, and then for the actual postage.

I can also do mugs, calendars, mousepads and magnets, but those get a bit pricey for me to ever order, much less for someone else to purchase. But if you’re super keen on getting a mug or something, let me know. :)

United States
I'm just an aspiring artist from the lovely Mitten State. I'm a Roman Catholic who loves her Faith and everything pertaining to it (especially her philosophy, theology and history!). Like everyone else, I have an insatiable thirst for the Three Great Transcendentals: the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. I make art because I simply enjoy doing it. Historical and theological themes and subjects are what fascinate me the most, and I think that the human figure in particular is one of inexhaustible beauty. The Incarnation of Our Lord, after all, changes everything. For that reason, I also love to depict Our Lord and Our Lady, because they are the summit of human perfection (being the New Adam and new Eve and all that. ;-)). Our Incarnate God and His Mother are my favorite subjects to depict. :meow:

FullmetalKobe824 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2014…

Do you agree with the article? If so, may I ask why?
Theophilia Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Out of curiosity, is there a reason you are asking this?
FullmetalKobe824 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2014
Yes, because it's the article that triggered my anger towards Catholics and made me create the account I later deleted, AntiRCCZealot. You see, despite a few disagreements on their beliefs and doctrines such as the Holy Mother's perpetual virginity, I've always admired and respected the Catholic Church and their followers for standing firm in their faith with their teachings unaltered or twisted. I've always been fascinated by their courage to speak the Truth. There were even numerous times I considered converting myself to Catholicism from Messianic Judaism! But that article is what had blinded me with pure hatred, bitterness and vindictiveness, all of which are indeed contrary to Christ and the Holy Virgin. I will explain to you the reason if you are curious. :(
Theophilia Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, go for it. And if the reply is to long you can always note me. :nod:

You may not believe it, but this is Paul greeting you with an open heart, the one that used to be known as "AntiRCCZealot". Long time no see. :)
