Francis, (detail), Oil and acrylic on canvas, 48 x 13 inches.
Today I’m putting the finishing touches on a new Saint Francis, this one with faint stigmata. This afternoon I’ll use acrylic for the lettering around the sides, attach a small “Francis” nameplate, and it’ll be ready to show this weekend in McKinney.
Images of Francis are popular. So many people from so many different paths are drawn to him and his message. I received a photo earlier this morning from some folks who purchased a large Saint Francis while I was in New Mexico. The photo shows the painting in its new home beside other beautiful pieces they have collected. This brings me great joy!
