The I Madonnari were the devoted artists in Italy who would show their love and devotion to the Madonna by creating portraits of her in chalk, on the pavement outside of churches in Italy. This became a tradition in Santa Barbara 27 years ago in front of the Old Mission. Street painters created replicas of the old masters' Madonnas in front of the Mission steps. Today, we have Madonnas and we have beautiful expressions of family and nature and love. 

Our family has been creating for those 27 years. 

This year, Tom, my husband crated his 16th original portrait of our children.
Our daughter, Kieran, created her 7th square.
