I Am the Lord’s Servant

My painting is a portrayal of the scene in the Scripture of the Annunciation of Mary. The painting is based on the most vivid image I could picture in my mind while reflecting on the passage. Mary is gazing up at the Angel Gabriel who is not included in this illustration, but present outside the picture.

Mary’s expression was quite a hard one to depict, a mixture of shock, joy and reverence. The colour is mostly a greenish yellow and a deep blue to capture these emotions. The contrast is achieved with the beam of light shining down on Mary, the servant of the Lord.
