It’s St Peter!!!
Mod note: I have absolutely no idea what this is in reference to, but as it was a submission rather than an askbox I can’t really reply and find out which post has been reblogged erronously (and I will admit now, I reblog things here because I find them on the St Sebastian tag or because someone submits them).
Georges DeLaTour, Saint Sebastian tended by Saint Irene, 1649
Here is a painting I did based on Saint Sebastian. It is titled “Boy Cried Wolf” and was done in 2012, oil/canvas, dimensions are 40 x 30.” I love your tumbler and would be quite pleased if you would consider adding it to your collection : )
I just discover your blog and i remember that I draw one in the late 70’ , if you like it..

Edelman Arts is pleased to announce the opening of ‘St. Sebastian 1530 to 2011’, January 2nd to February 25th at our New York gallery.
This provocative exhibition explores the evolving interpretation of St. Sebastian from the Renaissance to the present. St. Sebastian is a figure well-established in the visual canon since the early Renaissance as the bound, sensuously semi-nude figure impaled with Roman arrows.
Our exhibition is anchored by Titian’s portrait from c. 1530, a striking illustration of the artist’s virtuosic abilities to work with light and color to infuse St. Sebastian with life and emotion. In direct view of Titian’s masterpiece will be contemporary depictions of St. Sebastian by Doug Argue, Carlos Betancourt, Britt Boutros Ghali, Yves de Bradander, Macia Grostein, Red Grooms, Elisa Jensen, Cynthia Karalla, Cathy McClure, Michael Murphy, Louise Nevelson, Eric Rhein, and Christopher Winter.
Edelman Arts is located at 136 East 74th Street, New York, NY
Hours: 10am to 7pm, Monday through Saturday
[Mod note: OH MY GOD THIS IS EXCITING! Anyone in New York, please go and see this since I’m on the wrong side of the Atlantic?]

I’ve been making a lot of little props for future shoots lately and I really like the little sticky arrows I made a few weeks ago. Thankfully when Erin was at my house recently she was a sport and let me try them out on her. Here is the result of the test.
Not sure how I feel about it, let me know what you think.
