How did you find Sr Lucia's page?: The Mother of All Art HIstory Sites
Comments:
I enjoyed the piece on the roles femininity and nurturing play while painting fresco. It's reassuring to know that another woman sees herself as nurturer of an artform and art pieces, and does not have to be a mother in the natural sense to be a mother to the world. Thank you so much Sister! I would like to know more about the Spritual retreats you host.

How did you find Sr Lucia's page?: link from Fresco web site
Comments:
Hello there and thank you for your great work! I have been interested in mural painting and fresco inparticular for a long time. I am an artist, who loves large work. I am currently very busy but would love to know if you teach or have workshops. Plea e reply I would like to learn fresco technique and preparation on a (time) shoestring budget. The actual preparation seems to take much more effort than I am able to handle now, but would love to hear any suggestions. We have a new church that is buildi g a chapel, we have designed the stained glass, but I would love to do something on one of the walls. Again do you teach?

We live in an earthly paradise at the southern tip of Africa. For all its physical beauty, this is an artistic wasteland - spiritually at least. In as many ways as we can, we are trying to teach and encourage the practice of sound artistic methods. We are moving forward on the understanding that art is primarily a spiritual affair and true artists must therefore be, of necessity, spiritually mature human beings. Your Sr. Lucia is an inspiration in more ways than we can express here. Through the Internet, her work and her example can continue to inspire others on a huge scale. Thank you for taking the trouble to put up the website and for the valuable information n fresco painting. Roderick Freemantle Principal Talana Art Trust

It is an honor to be on the list of Sr. Lucia's. I am just beginning my art-work in murals, but is inspring to see a woman also, can be recognized for her work. Not that a lot of women aren't, but everyone that paves a path for the others should be commended........ Take Care, God go with You------Trish K.

I am a Nathaniel B. Barnes and Jane Blanchard gene. reasearcher. Lucia Louise Barnes m. James B. Wiley, in Henn. Co. yrs ago. Lucia was my gr. aunt. Wayne Wakefield Wiley was your Sister's father. I have researched some of the Wiley's and have her fathers estate papers, in my effort to replace the book by her aunt Bessie Olive Wiley with whom Sister resided during her Minn. work. Can give you photos her grandparents, and fair history of her family 1851-? Minn. records leave some what frustrated. Thank you for sharing her work, which we stumbled on in Tillamook. The Stienbach family has donated many of her early sketches and art to the Museum there. Her mother, Frances Drew Wiley remarried when her father Wayne died in CA of TB. The disease, it seems, took its toll on the family. Sincerely. Eugene V. Barnes evbarnes@earthlink.net

I love this site and Sr. Lucia's work. Also her name - my brand new granddaughter is named Lucia. I am a counselor and another counselor and I dabble in art and both got a beautiful book on fresco painting and this site adds a great deal more knowledge. I am looking for a source for the best lime which someone told me comes from England. My daughter-in-law's aunt is a fresco painter in Bath and I'm wondering if I can get some through her or is there a good source here? Can you help me. I am partially disab ed and envision doing small frescos in a frame of some sort as I would not be able to do wall work or anything too large. Thanks for any suggestions.

I also thought that it was a great idea to show some of her sketches along with the finished pieces . :-)

Sr. Lucia touched me deeply with her smile and wisdom. As you know, she was and, I am very sure, continues to be a very special spirit. Her paintings of angels are so magnificent. That is because I am sure that Sr. Lucia lived very close to angels and saw them often. How else could she capture the angel's essence.

Sr. Lucia was my great aunt... her work was/is and will always continue to be beautiful and inspirational -- works of solace and comfort for those in Tillamook, Oregon.... when the rains pummell a bit too threateningly... they may view some of her work in the Tillamook Pioneer museum, or her magnificent Fresco murals in the county courthouse, of which I have always been in awe. I have truly been a great admirer of my dear great aunt Lucia......always wanting to wake up one day and simply be as impacting a person as she was... and what is really great is that she seemed to live her life soully for the purpose of others and never really seemed to expect anything in return... I was lucky to have kept in touch with her a little bit, over the last few years, ex hanging letters and cards, thoughts... she was a beautiful person to correspond with and I deeply regret that I will no longer be able to speak to her, when I was just beginning to get to know Sr. Lucia. I need to get to class, but I wish all of the prev ous and future guestbook signers well, as they cope with the loss of a truly great person and to Sr. Lucia's family - and the creator's of this web page - you are all quite amazing.

today i learned that sister lucia died last thursday, august 20. it was very sad news, especially since i'd just met sister lucia in may, and we loved each other instantly. i am also a fresco painter, and i was probably the first fresco painter sister luc a met since she entered the convent. she loved the fresco medium with a passion, and i shared her passion for it. karen ellis, a dear friend of hers, informed me of sister lucia's passing, and we will get together to look at sister lucia's artistic legacy we hope to preserve her work for posterity, since her artwork, especially her frescoes, were her deepest form of prayer. this is my first visit to this site, and i was very impressed with its organization and the quality of its images. knowing the diffic lties of working in the fresco medium, i'm especially impressed with the fact that sister lucia was basically self-taught in the medium, and she started off with such an ambitious project, which unfortunately was destroyed.

When I return I will visit you again and show you some slides of the murals I am completing. I send you lots of love and prayers, Love, Christine

Welcome Generation-Choicemaker. Never forget who you are...made in His image...for Freedom. Man is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of Criteria. Psalms 119:30,173 His unique and definitive charac eristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural foundation of his environment, institutions, and respectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is oriented to a Freedom whose roots are in the natural Order of the universe. Let us proclaim it. Behold! he SEASON of Generation-Choicemaker. selah

I went to St. Hilda's in 1958 and 1959 while my father was Chaplain to CHS (Samuel Wylie). I knew Sr. Lucia. It is neat to see more of who she is! I got my Master's a few years ago in Studio Art and concentrated in painting. Light is crucial and basic to my work also. Though most people don't realize the meaning of "light" to me and only look for realistic image . My work tends toward the abstract and expresses the light of the Spirit in me and what I perceive and experience. Thanks for making this page available to Sr. Lucia. Mary Wylie Carter

Hello Sr. Lucia; I've been reading about you in Stirrings and have just looked you up on the Web. I so remember happy visits with you at St. Cuthbert's House especially when we could talk about expressing one's faith through artistic endeavors of which continue to do also. I'm thrilled with your successful expansion into Cyberspace , I think that's what it's called! Happy Easter to you (It is Easter Day) and we are about to go off to be with some of the family but I did want to greet you on this most perfect Spring day. With affection from one artist to another, Sincerely, Joy Coolidge.

I am a 1977 graduate of St. Hilda's and am always eager to hear about the sisters and other alums. I so enjoyed the article about Sr. Lucia. I remember her well. Hello, Sister! I hope you get this message. I remember you well--you always had a smile or all the students and we could tell how much you cared about us all. Your paintings are beautiful. I feel sad that I didn't know much about your work when I was a student. I was so glad to see your work on the Internet, and perhaps when I am back in ew York, in person. Have a wonderful Easter.

Hope the weather warms enough for you to sit in your garden.

So this is religious art, apparently. I wonder if some of my works are to be considered religious. There is a 15-plane, 4-sides work technically to be called altar, which seemed to be a problem at first from lack of reason to change sides (which is given n clerical altars). But I saw a solution to this, talk at length about it in my memoirs (at the time in German only). Thanks.

I am helping my son research his senior project in high school. He has painted a number of murals at his school and has chosen to learn about murals and muralists for his project. I was especially interested to note that Sr. Lucia is an Episcopal nun, as I am an Episcopal priest--Rector of Blessed Sacr ment Church in Placentia, CA. Very fine and moving images. I am learning as much as my son.
