Divine Comedy

These pictures are all based on monochrome woodcuts by Gustave Dore, found in The Divine Comedy by Dante.

I have not painted any images of Hades; only Paradise.

  1. Dear Cathy,

    How very lovely these pictures are! Thank you for using the gifts God has given you to paint such beauty for others to see. I believe God delights in the joy we are enabled to give others with the gifts He gives to us. Each person is unique and has unique gifts from Him to give.

    1. Well, in theory I went self employed last October to sell pictures. In practice I have not yet connected prices to pictures, or offered them for sale. So yes, but I don’t know how much. 🙂

  2. I have revisited your paintings again Cathy, the detail is incredibly amazing and beautiful what a gift you have, when did you discover you could paint so wonderfully, on some paintings you have such a light touch the people are hardly visible thank you for bringing joy to my soul
