Saint Nicholas of the Sea


Nicholas, the Patron Saint of sailors, fisherman, and ships, rides his skeletal seahorse through the high seas.

Painting Process
The 15 x 26 background was painted with blue acrylics and then the underpainting was created with various colors of gouache. The half skeleton, half octopus saint and his seahorse were finely detailed with dark blue enamel and then entire piece was clear coated to unify the mediums and add a hint of shine.

Canvas Prints
The ready-to-hang Saint Nicholas of the Sea 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.
