This giclee print is on 9 x 12" archival cotton rag paper. This is my usual freestyle, except towards the end I added the Mona Lisa's face (right). I became curious about the muse for the Mona Lisa, and it turned out to be a MAN! A student of da Vinci. So I researched him and found he was also the model for a painting of Sebastian of Gaul. I sure liked how da Vinci painted Sebastian's arms (it seemed they were holding a quill pen), so I put those arms on one figure (left). Then I found a Caravaggio painting of Catherine of Alexandria and her arms were also lovely, so I put those arms on the other person (right). She was holding a sword, but I left the sword out because I only cared about the arms. Now you know why I named the painting "No Pen, No Sword". After I wired and hung the painting I thought, "dang, I really ought to learn more about art history, just in case somebody asks me about this painting," so I researched the Sebastian and Catherine portraits further and it turns out they were both holding the instruments of their own destruction in their arms. Sebastian was tied to a tree and used by archers for target practice (it wasn't a quill pen in his hand, it was an arrow!), and Catherine had her head chopped off. But... Sebastian miraculously survives all the arrows and gets beat up and left for dead in a gutter. This story about Sebastian was so upsetting that I researched it further and I found a painter named Ludovico Carracci who also painted Sebastian. It seems a bunch of old masters painted Sebastian. Anyway, somewhere in Carracci's portfolio of work, I found another face, which I added (left). And through all this I learned about the Diocletianic Persecution (year 303) which is a whole other story. SHIPPING IS INCLUDED IN THE COST if you are in the USA.
