"I am so drawn by it and her eyes have truly captured my heart every time I stare at it."


Good Morning, Richard! My name is Ana I have come across your pictures online. Our Lady of Fatima picture is the most beautiful photo of Mary I have ever seen. I am so drawn by it and her eyes have truly captured my heart every time I stare at it.

I can't explain the feeling, but all i know is I want others to feel that piercing love and devotion for our Mother! I am working on blessing bags to give my family soon and would LOVE to have some pictures of her.

I just want to add a special thank you from us from the bottom of our hearts for changing my entire love and devotion to our blessed Mother from this photo. I cannot wait to buy copies and share this face to all her children!!!! Love and God bless!

"I cannot tell you the consolation your painting brings me. "


Dear Richard, I cannot tell you the consolation your painting brings me. It is my favorite depiction of Our Mother, and I often wondered about its origin... Today, I found your website, and I am so very grateful... Her eyes, Her smile... I fall asleep looking at Her... I pray the Rosary looking at Her...

Though I was never privileged to see Her, I sense that you have really captured a special part of Her… We solve the mystery as to the amazing artist behind this most edifying painting... I am just so thrilled to have finally found you!!!

"I want to witness You a great joy and graces that we received through Your amazing image of Our Lady of Medjugorje"


Dear Mr. George!+ I don't know but I really hope this letter will come to You! My name is Fr. Marko Glogovic and I am an priest and Pauline monk from Croatia (Europe). By our Lord Jesus grace, I lead huge pro-life movement here, with 7 houses for pregnant mums, lots of prayer and humanitarian initiatives, vigils before hospitals, pregnancy counseling etc. I live in monastery close to our capital Zagreb, and we have here a beautiful little sanctuary for life.

I want to give God glory and thank for Your gift and talent and love for Him and Our Lady! I want to witness You a great joy and graces that we received through Your amazing image of Our Lady of Medjugorje (Tihaljina)! I bought that image there, in that holy land, where we have pilgrimages 20 years now. So, our movement chose this Your image for our main pro-life symbol. I myself bring it wherever I go, and I went to 25 countries and at more than 1000 places, mainly parishes, like parish - missionary. In September we will bring that Your image before 40 abortion clinics in our country!

SO, I just want to THANK YOU dear brother Richard and to make Your heart joyful, for knowing that Your beautiful work is bringing so many fruits for Heaven: so many saved babies from abortion, so many wonders of life for those who cannot concept, so many marriages in crisis that now have peace and community once again... Thank You for listening inspiration of Holy Spirit and gave us such a gift of art that is much more than only a picture! This is all I wanted You to know. This is my small encouragement for You, to go on, to be brave in Christ, to listen Our Lady, to make more beautiful images on God's glory and for the salvation of the souls. God bless You!

I am sending You my priestly bless +++

Ave Maria! If You will go to Medjugorje, please - You are welcome to our convent, be how long You wish to be, You are very welcome!

-Fr. Marko Glogovic, Pauline Fathers, Croatia

"The gold frame fits it perfectly. My wife is pleased..."


Just wanted to let you know I appreciate the special care you put forth in shipping our framed "Our Lady of Tihaljina". It is now hanging on our wall. The gold frame fits it perfectly. My wife is pleased... and after 54 years, I know that counts.

"They cried when they saw it. They will place it on her as they pray her into heaven."


Hi! I bought your God-inspired Lady of Medugorje sherpa blanket at the St Louis Conference. I have never before seen such a beautiful image of Our Mother! My jaw dropped when I first laid eyes on it, and my heart soared. I felt I needed to purchase it for my prayer group to borrow when they felt the need. It was blessed by Fr Becker.

Well, it only took 1 day before two sisters borrowed it to put on their friend who will most likely be called to heaven after at least 32 surgeries. They cried when they saw it. They will place it on her as they pray her into heaven. I just wanted you to know this is only the beginning of a beautiful mission that will spread because of the heavenly gift you were blessed with. Thank you for sharing your most beautiful depiction of Our Lady...if She is that stunning on a blanket, what must She be face to face??!!

"when I saw the booth with your paintings, I was awestruck. They are beautiful!!!"


Dear Mr. George, I wanted to share this with you . . . My husband had knee surgery on Wednesday, so I couldn't go for the entire weekend to the Marian Conference in St. Louis. He said he would be fine with the help of a couple of our daughters in my absence. A couple of friends and I came up Saturday from Jeff City, and when I saw the booth with your paintings, I was awestruck. They are beautiful!!! I told your son (John Paul--I asked him if he was named after Pope John Paul and he said yes!) that I was very picky about my Jesus and Mary pictures and statues. I look long and hard for ones with faces (and especially eyes) that really look like how I would picture them. We had a conversation about your work and I told him I recognized the one painting of Mary (the one of the place NEAR Medjugorje).

But I didn't know who the artist was. After a few minutes of talking to him, and telling him I didn't know the RL George name, I asked him if he actually KNEW you. I thought he was just a vendor, selling your artwork. He said, "He's my dad." I can't tell you why I became so emotional at those words, but I started crying and it took me a while to get composed. Perhaps it was because I was thinking how blessed he was to have a DAD who painted pictures of Jesus and Mary!!!! Your wife (who I didn't yet know was your wife) put her arms around me and hugged me. I then said, "And you are his wife?" She said yes, and I again became emotional, thinking how blessed she was to have a husband who painted pictures of Jesus and Mary!!! She handed me a holy card of Mary, and I told her thank you, but I wanted to buy the large pictures. I did! They are all so beautiful that it took me so long to decide, but I got the canvas 11 x14 (I think that size) one of Our Lady of Medjugorje and the Holy Face of Jesus, same size. I am going to put them in our sun room where all of my family is most of the time when they come to visit!!! I also got some notecards of the Divine Mercy image. I love it so much more than the one that Sister Faustina had painted. It was the eyes and face in Faustina's one that just didn't look like MY Jesus!

I was telling Margaret that I had 8 kids (and they told me there are 8 children in your family too!!) and 19 grandkids, and one of my grandkids told me I had 38 pictures of Jesus in my house!! :-) Margaret smiled and asked if it was a boy, and I said yes! My 16 year old grandson! I wanted to tell you that your wife and son are beautiful--inside and out. IN my short conversations with them, I could tell they were such good and holy people. Your son has the most beautiful eyes, and I told him if he had long hair he would look like Jesus. He is such a handsome and kind young man, and has a beautiful smile and polite manner. As far as your work, you do such an amazing job of making Jesus and Mary look so real (again, the eyes) that it brought tears to my eyes. Some artists have beautiful paintings of Jesus, but often their eyes are looking away--so they don't have to exactly get the "Jesus look" in the eyes. THere is one pretty recent painting of the Last Supper, and I loved it--except Jesus (and his eyes) does not look like I would picture Him. I don't know what the rest of your kids look like, but your son, John Paul could be the "eyes" artist model for Jesus. And I did visit the other booths at the conference, but I kept being drawn back to your booth. I felt almost a holy presence while standing there . . . .

And after Fr. Calloway's talk, I came back to the booth and bought a couple of those little wood hinged items (Margaret said John Paul and a brother came up with that idea!) I actually had a dream last night that I looked on the internet to see a picture of your family--but I didn't!! I got home at almost midnight! But I saw in my dream a bunch of beautiful kids!! :-) Mine range in age from 27 to 45 . . . time goes so fast. Anyway, I won't take up anymore of your time, but wanted you to know that I am so grateful that I got to attend this conference on Saturday, especially since I got to see your works. You are so gifted. God has truly blessed your hands!! And I might like to display a painting of the Holy Family if you ever paint one of that!! :-) Fr. Calloway said Joseph is often depicted as an old man, but he was NOT! He was a handsome--just a bit older--foster father of Jesus!! God bless you and Margaret and John Paul--and all your family! And maybe I will see you or part of your family at next year's Conference in ST. Louis!!!

-Thank you!! Donna B.

"I ordered the 12x16 canvas print of Our Lady of Medjugorje and the tears are welling up in my eyes. "


I just received my order from the Catholic Shoppe in Westmont. I ordered the 12x16 canvas print of Our Lady of Medjugorje and the tears are welling up in my eyes. I have never seen a more beautiful depiction of Our Lady; her blue eyes are so penetrating, the crystal rosary looks like a rosary of finest diamonds; the blue of her dress and back round compliment her eyes. I work from home & She is hanging on a wall across from my desk so I can look at her all day.

I had ordered the prayer cards at Christmas time and sent them in my Christmas cards to family & friends. I am now going to order the pillow to keep Our Lady in our living room (I have no more wall space in my living room)!

God has blessed you with this awesome talent & skill. Thank you for your ministry. I just wanted you to know how much I love this print.

May God continue to bless you, your beautiful family and your ministry. (I used to live about an hour away from the Catholic Shoppe but we've been in Florida now for 6 years. I've been getting the Medjugorje magazine since 1999! That's where I saw your picture of Our Lady of Medjugorje).

-God's Love & Peace to you all, Denise

"Your painting has not only touched me deeply but also that of others I have shown it to."


Your painting has not only touched me deeply but also that of others I have shown it to. I would dearly love to use it to capture the attention of my students and others to encourage them to visit my newly launched website.

If they go to the website there will be a clear statement of who the artist is and your web address so that people can go there to learn more about you.

"oh my she’s so beautiful! I have seen young men holler for joy and older men cry tears of happiness..."


The 2nd pillow arrived, and I have given the prints and canvas and prayer cards to people, and every time the reaction is the same... oh my she’s so beautiful! I have seen young men holler for joy and older men cry tears of happiness...

I think you know of my huge joy of having the 'Our Lady of Tihalina's image, how much it has brought a real dimension of Our Lady into my relationship with her. She truly is my Mother, and to see Her watching over me in the painting is a real blessing.

May God bless, favor and fructify this wonderful ministry. We love you Mary!! God bless,

Br David
