Benedict portrait

Hello to everyone! I’m delighted to have found this site and honored to be able to participate. Thank you Ted for the invitation, and thank you Eric for the help. There is great talent here, so I hope all of you like my work

Above is an oil painting of Pope Benedict I did for one of the churches in my area.

May God bless us all

This is one beautiful work. Thank you for sharing it with us. (Will there be prints available? (hint,hint....)

Anthony VanArsdale said...

Thank you VERY much Ted and Rebecca!

my portfolio is under construction right now and I hope to have it up soon

I'm still considering prints... some others who have seen the painting asked the same question and the money could help this particular parish...

they're in the process of building a new church right now

I hope to share some more of my religious work with you soon... again, I'm glad you like it!

That is a remarkable likeness! You've really captured the Holy Father. I especially like the eyes (windows to the soul). Welcome!
