Rejoice! Art Prints: The Annunciation
A reflection on the piece from the artist:
“Do not be afraid,” the angel said to Mary.
This painting meditates on the intimate conversation between the angel and the Virgin after those words were spoken. In this painting, the angel, Gabriel, interrupts Mary in her daily chores to announce that she will give birth to Jesus.
Gabriel’s glow not only reveals his glory but also, like a candle’s light, brings a comforting glow of grace to Mary. Although appearing small and modest, Mary stands comfortably in the angel’s presence—listening to his every word. The painting is a balance of miraculous wonder and prayer-like peace.
This painting is also about vessels. The two vases on the floor represent the Law and the Prophets. Mary, a vessel herself for Christ, holds a basket representing our Savior, Jesus—God poured out for the entire world.
