Saint in Prayer

Saint in prayer, Joaquín Sorolla, 1887

I love Sorolla's paintings. This one must have been a favorite because he "always kept it in a special place in their house, as revealed by many of the photographs of the artist’s various studios and dwellings." Read more at the Museo del Prado's site.

I myself like the fact that we can't see the face. It could be any of us and, indeed, is what we should be striving for — to become a saint!
