Stigmatization of St. Francis coloring page colored

I colored this page from the Liturgical Calendar Coloring Book for the Candlemas festival, but I'd had this image of it, with the lighting, in my head for years.

In the coloring book, this is designated as the St. Francis page, but I call it the Stigmatization of Francis now as a way of making an announcement:

I plan to prepare and make available an Extraordinary Form / Traditional Calendar version of the Liturgical Calendar Coloring Book. That is to say, one following the Roman Calendar that was used between the Councils of Trent and Vatican II and is still used in the Extraordinary Form observance. (It's also the one I grew up with when we did "Saint of the Day" while homeschooling, because all the best books of saints are old.) You see, in that calendar, St. Francis gets another day for his stigmatization, so I will use this page for that and draw a new page for the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi.

As a matter of fact, I have a great interest in the liturgy as observed before the Council of Trent; there was yet another different calendar then. If I had all the time in the world...

I would so love an extraordinary form liturgical calendar coloring page set!!! Please let me know when you have it completed!! We use your ordinary form pictures on almost a daily basis for the kids to color while we read about the saints. They are wonderful and I'm so thankful that you are sharing your talent in this way.

Sorry it took me a while to reply!
Thank you for letting me know of your interest! I've got many projects going so I don't know when I'll be able to do this, but I know now more than before that it's important that I do. Thank you and I will let you know!
