Dark Pieta was painted from a very out of focus photo that I shot while on a hurried tour through St. Peters Basilica in the Vatican. I love architecture and the contrast between the people at the bottom of the painting and the towering architecture. This is part of Pilgrimage and Passages, a Spiritual Journey.

On the train leaving Cologne, Mary and the girls were tired yet excited about the adventures ahead on their tour of Europe. I wanted to capture the unusual space and light within the train and the compressed space containing the figures.
This is the latest completed painting in Pilgrimage and Passages depicting Theresa, Mary, Bob and Donna outside the Cologne train station in Germany. I had a lot of fun working on this piece, although considering that it is 4'x 6' it was truly a challenge.
