Another view of the Annunciation.
Though my 'official' Annunciation post went live last night, I couldn't help but share the above image, which I discovered this morning via this post on Canadian Jesuit scholastic John O'Brien's blog Veritas Liberabit. This contemporary rendering of the Annunciation was produced in the summer of 2000 by American artist John Collier as part of a series of paintings commissioned by St. Gabriel's Church in McKinney, Texas. If you would like to learn more about John Collier and his work, consult this online bio and read this interview focused primarily on the reception of the above painting. To read more of John O'Brien's thoughtful reflections on the intersection between faith and culture, take a look at Veritas Liberabit and consider adding it to your regular reading list. AMDG.
