Maria de Mi Casa #2

This beautiful Mary came from the Tuesday Market in San Miguel de Allende.  She was obviously old, painted on tin, and very faded…
I could hardly make out the image, so I brought her home and asked my sister – the painter in the family – if she could brighten her up…
but not too much!

…and Wha la!

On this day, I caught her fraternizing with the sun and a heart-shaped mirror.
A little miracle, she shared with me.
