Completed on 9-25 painted on a birch wood panel with painted sides. St. Francis has wide appeal with both the animal connection and of course his story. We had a Giotto poster of him growing up at the entrance to our basement that I loved and my mother became a member of the Franciscan order when I was a teenager. Another connection would be that my son Sam's school is located at a former Franciscan seminary. I've painted different versions over the past 5 years. http://catherinenolin.org/artwork/3851391-St-Francis-Of-Assisi.html
