St. Stephen’s Day

Some sketches for my St. Stephen’s Day painting. Traditionally, St. Stephen is depicted as a young man. Here, I’ve depicted him even younger, as a boy. He is flanked by widows in mourning dresses because St. Stephen is the patron saint of widows. I will tell you more about the symbolism in this painting as we go along.
