A Painting I Love

This isn't part of my Rosary Art Collection; it's just a painting that I love and want to share.  I first read about it in a book
called "Princess in Calico."  I learned awhile ago that the paperback copy I have is an abridgement.  Thank God I was able to get the complete version for free on Kindle.  I plan to read it in the near future.
