St. Francis De Sales Stained Glass Window/3

This summer I have been working on  a church restoration  at St. Francis de Sales Catholic church in Paducah, Kentucky. The funny photo-montage below is me posing for reference for one of two paintings I have  been commissioned to paint for a small altar in the church.

I was lucky and surprised  to find  a great costume shop in town, Creatures of Habit, which was able to put together something resembling a Bishops vestments for me. I’m also doing another one of Saint Jane de Chantel. I am going to hire a model and a nuns habit and do a similar photo-montage and then create both paintings.

I’m working with Tony Kartsonas of Historic Surfaces on this job. We have done a lot of  art in the church and still have much to do. I’ll do a more complete post when it is done. Below are some images from two  stained glass windows I touched up.
