Pray for Peace by Artist Michelle Yozzo Drake

When my husband, Rich, and I took a trip last year to Spain and Portugal I came back with color and images that I needed to paint.

This painting came from my experience in Fatima, Portugal. Seeing the procession of lights, praying the Rosary and hearing the accounts of the visitation of Mary to the children Lucia, Francisco & Jacinta in Fatima. She told them to pray for peace. A prayer that is as relevant today as it was in 1917 at the time of the visitations. This holy place touched me deeply and has inspired many of my recent paintings especially my Mary Series.

This painting is my prayer for peace.
