St. Paul and St. Francis Over Valletta, Malta







21 x 29.5 cm, watercolour and gouache, 2008.

This is another commission for the Franciscan Friars of Malta to celebrate the Pauline year and the 800th Anniversary next year of the Franciscan order. It shows Saint Paul and Saint Francis over the capital city of Malta, Valletta. St Paul is in his standard red and green colours and carries his symbolic sword, while Francis is in the traditional Franciscan habit and is preaching to the birds.

Love the old fashioned look and the muted colors.
