Happy birthday to St. Bernadette! Born on this day in 1844, in a small town in Southern France, Bernadette became a witness to several appearances of the Virgin Mary.
From the book, “The Lady in White,” this print is exclusive to AzulBlueDragon! Each painting was carefully researched and used authentic rare photos of young Bernadette taken at the time of the visions when photography was in its infancy.
These illustrations were painted for “The Lady in White,” a children’s book about the miracle of St Bernadette’s visions of the Vigin Mary & how she was led to discover a Miraculous healing spring that has cured thousands of pilgrims to the site.
This portrait shows Bernadette facing the viewer wearing her traditional clothes.
“The Lady in White” is available here.
Print is 8×10 on watercolor paper
