New Painting of Father Damien of Molokai

Father Damien by Linda Johnston

This beautiful painting of Blessed Father Damien praying, was painted by an artist on Molokai. Her name is Linda Johnston. She graciously forwarded a sampling to me this morning with permission to share it on this blog.
Aloha Esther,

I am a professional artist who has lived on Molokai for 20 years. I was inspired to paint a portrait of Blessed Damien in the prime of his life and work. I studied his life and photos of him for 3 years before completing the painting...
Please be sure to visit her website here. There are many lovely prints, cards, etc. for sale.

For those of you on Hawaii, remember to support our local artists.

I am adding the link to the sidebar under the Father Damien resource links.
