For Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Bakersfield, CA, we created a triptych for the altar area.
Madonna and Child
Oil and gold leaf on wood. A representative of Saint Francis of Assisi and I talked at the Form Reform Conference in California. She fell in love of a canvass I had of the Holy Family. She asked to have Joseph removed from the painting and the dark background replaced with gold leaf. Black and white images of the angels on the door were sent via e-mail and Peruvian master artist, Jesús Cuba, converted them into color images. The central figure is 5 feet (60 inches) tall by 4 feet (48 inches) wide. After the initial meeting, all of the details in the creation of this piece were completed by phone and e-mail.
