Saint Francis Bakersfield 2007


 In 2007, we were contacted by St Francis Assisi parish in Bakersfield once again to complete some additional artwork for the parish's chapel area.  The parish chose triptychs of St. Clare and St. Francis to be recreated as life sized paintings.  The parish wanted the work to be completed on site, so the artist completed preliminary sketches in Peru on the wood and had these shipped to the parish.  He then painted for 2 weeks in the actual church chapel to complete the paintings.  Scroll down to see the triptychs as shipped and as completed.  The final shot at the bottom of the page shows the ornate wood work on the doors of the triptych, only visible when the triptychs are closed.  Click here or  on any of the paintings below to see the completed works in the chapel.
