I am pleased to be able to share the completed painting for Saint Thomas Aquinas Parish in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. I worked on this painting through the spring and finally finished in July. I love being able to share my love for church architecture with a living community. The painting has been printed into notecards for sale for the benefit of the parish.
Architecture and landscape tell the stories of the people who live, work, and worship there, and I seek out the opportunity to tell those stories visually. It can be a priceless gift to commission or purchase a unique artwork which tells the story of a significant community for many individuals. A person’s sacramental history – Baptism, Confirmation, and Marriage – can be such important milestones in a person’s life. You can view another church commission project on a previous blog post.
