St. Peter, Catholic Patron Saint
As is commonly said, St. Peter is the rock of the Church. But more than just this elevated status, it is precisely in Peter’s more routine human aspects that we can find comfort, strength, and a way forward in our own times of weakness. He demonstrates the possibility of transformation – from his weakest moment, of denying Christ before the crucifixion, he quickly became the very symbol of the fortitude and forbearance of the Church.
A Reverse Oil Painting on Glass
Reverse oil painting on glass is an art technique by which the artist paints a picture on the reverse side of a glass surface. Realistic reverse paintings are extremely difficult to create since, for example, in painting a face, the artist must put the pupil of an eye on the glass before the iris, exactly the opposite of painting a picture. The artist is not able to correct any errors made earlier since the surface between the glass and the paint already applied is now completely inaccessible. An artist in Poland who specializes in religious themes painted this and many other reverse oil paintings on glass. Each of these beautiful paintings are enclosed in handmade frames with a leather back made by the artist’s elderly mother. No two paintings are alike ensuring you a one-of-a-kind religious art piece. This beautiful handmade reverse-oil on glass painting is a striking addition to any sacred space.
