St. Francis comes again and brings a Hen


Here is a little tin painting in the style of a Retablo.
Oil Paint on sheet metal
St. Francis finds a dog and a cat in a rural place and gives them a blessing.
 Birds like to follow him.





I also made a friendly hen from sheet metal.



Hen and the rest of the animals are safe and warm in my little house in the snow.

    1. Yes Dori the painting is on sheet metal oil paint over oil based primer. Like I was taught by my excellent teacher. I want to make another one painted with acrylic paint on metal. ..
