Seeking Something More

I have finally decieded what I am doing for the series project. I wanted to do three illuminated images, but I was not sure about what I would do them on. I love symbolism so I was looking at a book on Saints and their symbols in art. I Ran across Saint Joan of Arc and Saint Claire, two of my patron saints, so I have decided to do three illuminations of the saints who hold my name. Vivian or Bibiana, Joan and Claire. Now what I am doing is thinking about what symbolism they have in common to compose my boarder. For example, each saint is know for her purity, so I will have as part of my boarder white lilies, which are symbolic for purity. These two images gave me ideas for the format of my boarder, and I am continuing to research the symbolism and image identification of my saint.
