Church of the Spilled Blood (St Petersburg)
(2008)


This is a stylized version of the Church of the Spilled Blood in St. Petersburg, Russia.  It was painted as a birthday gift for Nikita Fitenko, a friend and piano teacher at Northwestern State University, Natchitoches, Louisiana.  The church is named for the blood of Alexander II, Czar of Russia, who was assasinated on that spot.
