Original painting is in oil on canvas.(24" x 36")

For years now I have intended to do a whole series of paintings about Joan of Arc, but so far this painting is the only one I have had a chance to complete. In this piece, she is preparing for a battle and she stops for a minute to communicate with God.

She is a saint, a cultural icon, and a pivotal person in the history of western civilization. Yet still, she was just an ordinary girl who was willing to be obedient to God. I think it is important to reflect on that and hopefully remember her in this way.
