SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI - CROW, DEER & DOVE

- by Cyra R. Cancel

This week's theme: Saints

Bakers Evangelical Dictionary on BibleStudyTools.com begins it's definition of the word "Saint" this way:

  • The word "saint" is derived from a Greek verb (hagiazo) whose basic meaning is "to set apart, " "sanctify, " or "make holy."

While most of us have at least a passing acquaintance with religious saints, we have always created our own saints. Our saints range from cultural saints, to family members, to those people that we personally revere. This week EBSQ's Art of the Day presents a variety of saints as interpreted by our EBSQ artists.


Art: SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI - CROW, DEER & DOVE by Artist Cyra R. Cancel
This is an ORIGINAL PAINTING (not a print), signed and dated in the back. MORE OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI...WITH A CROW, DEER & A DOVE. DEAR CROW, LOVELY DEER & PEACEFUL DOVE... I LOVE YOU ALL... Saint Francis of Assisi (September 26, 1181 October 3, 1226) was a Roman Catholic friar and the founder of the Order of Friars Minor, more commonly known as the Franciscans. He is known as the patron saint of animals, birds, and the environment, and it is customary for Catholic churches to hold ceremonies honoring animals around his feast day of October 4. PAINTED WITH ACRYLICS & COLORED PENCILS, IN BLACK PAPER. I always look for details in my drawings, or paintings. The photo shown does not show exactly the real colors of an artwork. Colors may vary slightly due to the photographic process, and individual monitors. The colors you see on your monitor may not accurately reflect the actual colors. Each drawing is sprayed with Fixatif, to prevent smudging and wrinkling.
