Dark Pieta oil 24" x 36"

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.

"The Passage Between" oil 40' x 60"

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.

Capturing a Moment in Space and Time 48" x 72" Oil

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.
