The Boatman on the River Styx


Lost souls bargain for safe passage on a hellish barge.

Painting Process
Each of the three panels in the triptych were first painted with alternating layers of blue, green, and yellow acrylics to create the dark atmosphere of purgatory. The tumultuous water, skeleton crew, and drowning beggars were painted with various gouaches, and then the fine detailing was painted with dark blue enamel. The three paintings were clear-coated and then mounted in a refinished, beaded, hinged arch frame.

Canvas Prints
The ready-to-hang Boatman on the River Styx, Boatman's Paddle, and Boatman's Scythe canvas prints are produced with archival ink on museum-grade, gallery-wrapped canvas and extend 1.25 inches off the wall, so there's no need for a frame. There are several sizes available and each limited-edition giclee is signed and numbered out of only 40 Artist Proofs. Please allow up to three weeks for delivery of canvas prints, as they are custom-built at the time the order is placed.
