The Trinity – Original Painting


“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Scroll down to learn more about this piece!

Available as just the painting on a linen panel (3/8″ plywood with linen adhered on top) or with a handmade, genuine gold-leaf, high quality frame. 12×16 without the frame, 17×21 with the frame.

NOTE: This frame is on backorder. It will take about 4-5 weeks to arrive to me before I can assemble the piece and ship it to you!


Inspired by the massive statue of the Trinity in the Il Gesu church in Rome, this has become the cover for Ascension Press’ program “What We Believe” found here.

As part of the program I worked closely with the team to come up with each composition, and immediately the Il Gesu came up as the primary reference. 

The program is a Catechetical dive into the Faith, and our Faith is first and foremost Trinitarian, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Without understanding the Trinity, every other aspect of the Faith falls flat.

So we emphasized the triune nature of the Trinity.

It’s often said that the Spirit is the love between the Father and the Son and as such He takes center stage, rays spreading from that typical dove and forming a triangle between Himself and the Father and Son.

Where the bottom portion of the triangle would be, the Father’s and Son’s hands interact, coalesce and dramatize the scene. God the Father, looking both as priest and emperor, commands, speaking His Word upon the Earth, while God the Son, the Word of God, holding His Cross, both intercedes with a petitioning hand, and at the same time accepts everything with a receiving hand.

Divine Justice and Divine Mercy shown clear. Jesus as our one intercessor between man and God is clear. Three persons, one God. Clear.


Oil paint is slightly transparent, letting light bounce through thinner layers of paint to the the lower layers. The brush strokes, everywhere they are even slightly raised, catch the light, and change throughout the day as the light changes.  The original painting will hold a depth that is not capturable with a print.  There’s no replacing what an original piece looks like, and when you love a piece, it’s always worth it to get the original if possible.

The frame that I’ve shown is a Masterworks Frames handmade, carved, 12 layer frame with hand applied gold leaf in either 12k (silver) or 22k (gold) genuine gold leaf (depending on what is shown in the photos). The frame is solid wood, and thick, I’ve never for an instant wondered if it would break, unlike store bought frames. The corners are filled in for a seamless museum quality finish.

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
