painted in 1991 when our Mother was still in relatively good health
The completion of this work of art was, undoubtedly,
this artists finest hour.
Over 300 hours of incredible detail went into the
creation of this masterpiece. With minute, almost hairless brushes
Judi used a labour-intensive dry-brush technique whereby
the watercolor was added layer by transparent layer.
"I have always had the highest respect for her and it was such
an honor & absolute joy to paint her.
Even more of an honor, was the fact that a framed print
was presented to her in Calcutta,
when she was still in relatively good health.
A tea farmer from Mumbai (Bombay) paid
for the framing and a little presentation took place"
This painting of St. Mother Teresa & the research that went
into it's creation was, for me, a spiritual journey in itself.
Judi Wild donated 20 of these magnificent prints to Fr. Joe, a personal friend of the Mothers who works closely with the Kripa Foundation in Mumbai. These prints are now hung throughout India in the Kripa Rehabilitation centers, which was established in 1981 in part by Mother Teresa herself.
