Hello all and welcome back to…
To see former posts related to this category go here:- art-of-de-islands 🙂
The arts that are produced are featured photos from my beautiful twin islands Trinidad and Tobago ❤ that I cut out from de islands tourist guide books that my bestie always save keep for me and I add a palette of colors/designs to it!
I always thought that Brazil was the ONLY country in the world that had built a depiction of Christ…little did I know that we have one too. Overlooking Mt. St Benedict Hill! I was like…WHAT? REALLY? We have that here and I didn’t know?
Yep. The question I kept asking myself.
Allow me to showcase the third art inspired by the beautiful gems God placed on these islands for his children to enjoy! ❤ Be blessed!

Art Technique:- Ruler edge painting. (where the yellow color paint is seen)

^Mount Saint Benedict Abbey was established in 1912 on 240 acres of land approximately 700 feet above sea level, purchased by Dom Mayeul De Caigny, a Brazilian Benedictine monk from Trinidadian Andrew Gomez. By June 27, 1912, the land was officially Benedictine property.
^Today, with its tower and red roofs, the abbey consists of a church, a monastery, a seminary, a drug rehabilitation center, a yogurt factory, and Pax Guest House, a place for retreat. The abbey welcomes and draws people of all faiths seeking peace, solace, purpose, and fulfillment. Mount Saint Benedict is currently presided over by Abbot John Pereira and houses ten monks.
Mt.St Benedict, Trinidad.
Have a blessed and peaceful day! Byes! ❤
