patron saints project......

i have been involved in a year long collaborative project called Patron Saints.  we each (12 of us) took a saint and created a book to hold other saints inside.   our own saint is on the outside of our book.  my saint was saint rita.   we were to take the attributes of the given saints and come up with a piece using our own style, interpretations and sensitivities.   
anyway, this is st. jerome: a scholar, an elderly man and also the description of  the myth of st. jerome taking the sliver our of the lion's paw. 
 i hope you can see my depiction here of the older man studying in his bed, the obvious lion above him and always the dove of peace.
this piece will go inside laurie mika's patron saint book.
