Saint Justina and Saint Catherine

Two new paintings.  Both measure 7″x7″ and are watercolor and gold leaf on paper. 

Saint Justina is the second painting in a series with Saint Cyprian (The Magician).  It would seem that Cyprian dabbled in black magic in order to win the heart of Justina, who was pure of heart.   Of course the magic didn’t work.  In fact, Justina was so pure of heart that she often appears with a unicorn.  In my painting, I made little Dobby, my dog, the unicorn.  He is a very special and strange creature.  The Latin translation is:  “Love Conquers All”. 

Saint Catherine.   This painting was done a few weeks ago but I am just getting around to posting it.  The Latin translation is: “She Flies on Her Own Wings”.
