The Grace of Work

Making miniatures is another money-maker. The miniature paintings are sold in the monastery gift shop, 720 Henry Clay Avenue, New Orleans. Sorry, no mail orders. Here is a room box that Sister Olivia made some years ago, based on her art room. All the furniture in it is hand-made from scratch, and you can see a sample of her paintings. As an added attraction, for a lesson in Paint Shop Pro, she put herself inside the miniature room box. Don't believe any photos you see any more! There are also a few other miniatures in the gift shop, such as hand-painted mugs, rosaries, and occasionally shrines and creches.
