Welcome to New Helfta Atelier

On January 2, 2006, this new atelier was ready. It was blessed and the first painting: SIRE GALILEO AND SUOR MARIA CELESTE was depicted here.

As always, I thank God for his wonderful gifts which he knows so well when I am ready to receive them. I thank the wonderful Mathematicians, Gary Towsley and Olympia Nicodemi who are like uncle and aunt to me for their love and generosity in offering me this atelier. The Lord sure allows the painting of the great Mathematician/Scientist, Galileo and his daughter nun, Sour Marie Celeste, to be the first to be painted here in the Towsleys' honor.

Here are some pictures of the atelier.

Artist at work / About the artist

As the spiritual father of New Helfta, Rev. Father John Eudes Bamberger prayed when he blessed it (through the phone :)), may New Helfta atelier be a place where God's love and glory be revealed, nourished, glorified and shined within and through those who encounter and are influenced by what New Helfta has to offer. Amen.

O our most beautiful Lady of Loving Compassion and most Blessed Mother of our Lord, please intercede for us. Amen.
