This Easter I paint Saint Peter. According to the New Testament he was a leader of the early Christian Church and the first Pope, ordained by Jesus if Matthew is correct. Today we have the Vatican City as his legacy from the ruins of the Roman Europe.
Peter was crucified in Rome, under the rule of Nero, upside down as he requested, as he believed himself unworthy of a replica death of Jesus.
Whilst heavily influenced by Caravaggio I have attempted my own version of his death this Easter. I have focused on representing his face, upside down, as a symbol of the cross and using blue to reflect his fisherman’s roots.
