Out of the box Virgen de Guadalupe

This particular canvas really had me stumped for weeks and weeks.  I knew I wanted to create a 3d looking box shrine and place a virgin figure inside, but at first I tried a standing one, but then it was Guadalupe that wanted to be in the shrine.  But after days and days of trying to place her in the shrine and getting really really frustraed, I stopped, and listened and heard that she wanted to shine out of the box with her star.  This canvas was really directed by La Virgen herself.  I'm ashamed to admit that I fought, and fought, thinking I was fighting the canvas, but I wasn't, It's just that I wasn't listening and I wasn't open to her leading. But now I understand.
