Hello my name is Catherine Butler, and I am a catholic. I have a few comments and questions about your portrait. First I would like to point out as an artist myself, I understand using your own thoughts in your art, which is why I will not put you down for your work. I would like to ask however why "Our Lady" is portrayed with her head up, and not down, seeing how she is a woman of humility. I would also like to know why you portrayed her in such a manner (almost naked), seeing how she was a very humble woman. She would have never even thought of wearing such clothing. Please respond. Again this is not an insult, but an iquery. Thank you.
