Giclee Prints of the Passion Series Are Now Available

You can now buy giclee prints and cards of all 24 panels of the Passion of Christ through Fine Art America.

A big thanks to Kittredge Cherry who made this happen.

She explains all the details:

Order now and you will receive your prints and cards in time for Holy Week, which starts April 13.  The 24 images show Jesus as a gay man of today in a modern city. 
 “Doug and I keep getting requests from people who want to buy reproductions of his Passion paintings, so we worked together to set up the new website. We see this as a service to individuals and organizations that want to foster spiritual reflection, especially during Holy Week,” said Kittredge Cherry, author of a forthcoming book on the gay Passion series.  
 Reproductions of the Passion are offered through Fine Art America, one of the largest, most-respected giclee printing companies in the world with over 40 years of experience producing museum-quality prints.  
They provide expert printing, custom framing and matting, shipping worldwide within three business days, and a 30-day money back guarantee. All of their prints are produced on state-of-the-art, professional-grade Epson printers. They use acid-free papers and canvases with archival inks to ensure that your prints will last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.  
 Fine Art America is also one of the biggest and best custom framers in the world. They stock more than 250 different frames that can be used to create museum-quality masterpieces. They also offer “metal prints” printed on aluminum and mounted on wood, and “acrylic prints” printed on a sheet of clear, high-gloss acrylic.  
 The greeting cards are 5 by 7 inches and can be customized with your own personal text printed on the inside. If you are interested in buying a complete set of all 24 prints, contact Kitt and Doug for a discount price quote. (Not available for cards.)  
 "The Passion of Christ: A Gay Vision" by New York artist Doug Blanchard presents a liberating new vision of Jesus' final days, including Palm Sunday, the Last Supper, and the arrest, trial, crucifixion and resurrection. The contemporary Christ figure is jeered by fundamentalists, tortured to death by soldiers, and rises again to enjoy homoerotic moments with God. His surprisingly diverse friends join him on a journey from suffering to freedom. Viewers call it “accessible but profound.”  
 The gay Passion series will be featured here at the Jesus in Love Blog next month from Holy Week to Easter, April 13-20. Blog posts will include reflections by lesbian Christian author and art historian Kittredge Cherry and art by Blanchard. Their illustrated book about the gay Passion will be published later this year by Apocryphile Press. Click here to be notified when the book is published

That's right!  I almost forgot!  There's a book coming out on these paintings.  Stay tuned.


And we made our first sale.  And another sale.

Here is a link that offers a somewhat better display of your art -- the images are in numerical order and your photo and bio are right on the side:

Yeah, even I almost forgot the book was coming out! I had to go back and add that to the end of your bio.
