This blog is following the creation of two giant paintings I am working on called Young Saints & Old Martyrs.
The paintings will face each other with the viewer in the middle. This activates the space between the paintings, giving it a third dimensional quality. The painting is commentary on the history of religious and theological thought, and how it affects the current generations.

Getting this laid out turned out to be a bit of a math problem... To draw them accurate to each other, I had to measure each person when they came in to pose, then figure out how to translate that to figures with no feet!  I would tell you how I did it, but I don't want to.  It was too complicated.

Although the under-wears of all these young saints will eventually be while, it was fun to have them start off looking like an American Apparel add.  The halos will also eventually be white gold leaf.
