A painting based on Julian of Norwich’s vision of the hazel nut.
“In this vision he showed me a little thing, the size of a hazelnut, and it was round as a ball. I looked at it with the eye of my understanding and thought “What may this be?” And it was generally answered thus: “It is all that is made.” I marvelled how it might last, for it seemed it might suddenly have sunk into nothing because of its littleness. And I was answered in my understanding: “It lasts and ever shall, because God loves it.”

that is yummy.
Would it be OK to use your lovely painting as an illustration for an article in our church magazine about Mother Julian?
Of course, do help yourself 🙂
I love Julian of Norwich and your painting is beautiful. I am a religious sister and putting together a prayer for our congregation. Would it be ok to use this painting
Of course! Help yourself to anything you find on this site. Every blessing on you and your ministry.
Hi! Revelations of Divine Love was extremely impactful on my husband. We even named our first child after Julian. Do you happen to sell prints of your painting? I would love to have one for my husband.
I’m afraid I don’t sell prints, but you are welcome to download an image and print it yourself 🙂
