Dress of Sinners, Dress of Saints

Dress of Sinners, Dress of Saints


One of the larger paintings I’ve done – from my “Magical Thinking” show at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles – here is “Dress of Sinners, Dress of Saints.”  Evocative of medieval/Renaissance era altarpiece paintings, there is a phenomenal amount of detail in this one.  A painstaking process I thoroughly enjoyed, I addressed the colour in an “Old Masters” kind of technique with a full grisaille underpainting and subsequent hundreds of layers of acrylic glazing over the course of 13 months (certainly the most time I’ve put into any single piece).. On your left of course are the “Sinners” (referencing medieval/Renaissance depictions of hellish scenes, demons, monsters, etc.) and on your right are the “Saints” (referencing medieval/Renaissance depictions of angels, saints, glorious religious pageantry, etc.). The background is intentionally evoking those marvelous Patinir rocky cliffs depicted frequently in Flemish landscapes of that period.  I love this painting so much!  The original acrylic painting itself of course sold at the show, but we have prints and canvases available worldwide now.

The Masterpiece Limited Editions are now SOLD OUT. We now have the Open Edition Canvases available which are remarqued with the JBG initial on the front, measure 20″x 10″ (also wrapped & ready-to-hang) and come with a signed certificate of authenticity.


Additional Details

Glossy Photo Prints

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with Canon Lucia archival inks and signed ON THE BACK by ME, the artist. Small prints are printed on 8.5×11″ sheets, large prints on 13×19″ sheets, and XL prints on 17″x 22″ but the printed area will reflect the odd dimensions of the painting itself. When you select the print size and type that you want to purchase, the Printed Area Dimensions will appear below your selection. Please note the dimensions to make sure that the print you select is a size that will work for your needs. We cannot provide custom print sizes at this time. What you see offered is what is available.


The Masterpiece Limited Edition Canvases (48″x 24″, hand embellished, signed & numbered out of 5 at $995 each) are now sold out!  We do have the Open Edition Remarqued Canvases (20″x 10″ with a signed certificate at $125 each) available. All canvas prints are made on canvas with Canon Lucia archival inks. They are wrapped on boards and stretched over a frame and shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. Both types are on the deeper/thicker gallery wrapped boards than our earlier canvases have been, very sturdy and solid, and match the profile of those that are sold at Pop Gallery, etc. If you have any questions about the canvas prints or the differences between the Masterpiece Limited Editions and the Open Editions, please contact us!
