St. Clare of Assissi.

St. Clare

Acrylic latex on primed plaster,  24″x 36″.

There are some  Native Americans who believe that “the richest man is the man who has nothing.” That’s the essence of St. Clare’s story. She and her sisters lived with no money, no shoes, and ate no meat. They lived in a very poor house, yet they were extremely happy because they felt God’s presence all the time. I find that narrative very refreshing considering the times we live in. All our little conveniences grow exponentially by the hour. We are so spoiled by modern technologies. The thought of choosing to live in poverty in order to obtain that devine connection is as admirable as it is profound.
