‘Saint Peter’ is one of the original paintings used in the film Finding Saint Francis . In these paintings Angela Thomas was commissioned to give the audiences a glimpse into the places most closely associated with the Franciscan story. In these watercolours she brilliantly brings to life the feeling of the Italian landscape.
Saint Peter – by Angela Thomas
The statue of Saint Peter doesn’t appear in the film but I find the story of how the pilgrims visiting the Basilica, Francis among them, came to kiss Saint Peter’s big toe before entering into the cathedral, charming. Unfortunately snippets of information like this take up too much time on film.
We are selling high quality cards and prints, both signed and unsigned by the artist, of all the original paintings. In addition, you can still buy a number of the original watercolors, which are mounted and framed with beautiful light oak.
