THE DIVINE MERCY IMAGE
Thomas Valle's first painting of the Divine Mercy image was a simple acrylic on canvas board painted in 1985 which he gave to his father. More than a quarter of a century later he revisited the theme, creating the version of the Divine Mercy image seen on this site. Painted in 2012, the image is a composite of both traditional techniques and new media. The image is on display in a numbe of churches and chapels, among them is the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama and St. Gregory's Abbey in Shawnee, Okla.
