Altar Screens.....SOLD

I've mentioned before how I love to research renaissance and religious art. I am fascinated by the detail,color and layout. My latest interest is altar screens. I've wanted to paint one for some time, although I would never be able to replicate the size and intricacy of authentic screens. So, I painted my version on a 16 x 20 stretched canvas, mixed media including acrylics, artist papers, 1880's Bible pages, and metallic paint. I hope to paint more on larger surfaces in the future, I loved creating this one. I will be listing this on Ebay tonight (if you click on the picture, you can see a larger image).You can view my current paintings for sale by clicking**HERE**.

Till next time,

Paper Mosaic Saint

This is my newest creation....a paper mosaic Angel/Saint painting. I had so much fun doing this one, it is truly a labor of love with all the hours put into the paper work. This one features actual pages from an 1880's Bible I purchased at an antiques store. This painting is currently listed on Ebay, and I'm working on more in the same style.
