  Great Expectations
Watercolor, gouache, colored pencil on watercolor paper

Marcia Landry

The image is a water-media painting entitled "Great Expectations" with the pregnant Mary carrying the infant Jesus in her womb. The figures around her reflect the range of our human response to this event two thousand years ago and even unto today. Some sleep. Some turn away and are unsure. Some glow with love and faith. Despite our human response that may fall short, the spirit of God is with us, touching us in unseen ways, both in the darkness and the light.
