Here I've copied a painting of Father Samuel Mazzuchelli (1806-1864)- Declared Venerable by Pope John Paul II in 1993. He's kind of a funny looking guy, but he has a pretty impressive resume.
This was assigned to me by the company I work for. I don't do a lot of painting in this style, and my reference image of the original painting was about 1.5 inches tall. So, this provided me with plenty of challenges.
This version I did, (I was told) is significantly larger- 2x3 ft. I have made some small changes from the original. Most, intentional with the purpose of creating a copy, but hoping to keep it's own image. I am happy with the results and I think it will be put to good use.
Through the month of October, I have been working on several smaller personal choice paintings, and im hoping that i can finish those up sooner than later so I can post some. It a new series for me and i like where it is headed.
