Not Your Typical St. Francis Paintings

I'm in love with painting magical little nature scenes of St. Francis in places of nature and beauty. The backgrounds of each custom painting usually include regional landscape and wildlife. Fanciful design elements give a little glow to the sweet nature scenes.
The starry night backgrounds are inspired by Van Gogh and our own wonderful night skies in Tucson, AZ. On clear nights just 20 miles from town you can see the Milky Way Galaxy!

Being self taught in glass painting, I eagerly learn everything I can from books and examples of 17th - 19 century vintage glass jewelry portraits, painted onto brooches, lockets. I am in awe of these tiny works of art, before photography, that recorded life.

Painting backwards takes planning, with each brush stroke visible and permanent. I use glass enamel paints on clear glass. The charming folk style lets me play with different designs and colors - some real, others pure whimsey. Once I start a painting I can't wait to get into my studio every morning!

The St. Francis paintings are painted on either glass or wood panels. Glass painting gives the rich, jewel colors that makes paintings glow with color and light.
The vibrant, detailed wood panel paintings have a different, lovely, softer feel.

Colorful, professional digital photo paper prints of most paintings are available in this shop. Cheerful vibes of St. Francis love for your personal space.

St. Francis of Assisi with animals and nature, folktales and glass mosaics are what you will find in my Etsy shop. You can commission your own companion with St. Francis by contacting me.
Wishing you peace and love for the day - I'm so glad you stopped by!

I take great care to package each item very carefully.
