Ted, as Saint Sebastian (2007)

Herewith a portrait of my good friend Ted, painted on the occasion of his marriage to Karen next week. The pose is, of course, of the Christian Martyr Saint Sebastian. Saint Sebastian has been painted innumerable times, and has become iconic – this particular pose is borrowed from the version painted by Zoppo in the 15th Century.
