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.)

Eleven of the original paintings are also for sale, priced at $2,000 apiece. Each one is oil on wood panel, measuring 14 by 18 inches. Contact us if you are interested.

"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.

We made our first sale today! How appropriate that it was “Jesus Rises” -- the same image that first led me to contact Doug in 2005. We sold a greeting card with it to a buyer from Mississippi. Details at this link:

Eric, I'm glad you like the Easter morning image with Mary. It glows with gorgeous colors and a peaceful joy.

When I checked my email this morning I thought I was being flooded by spam. But it turned out that we were flooded by sales! Somebody in Wales, bought a complete set of greeting cards with all 24 of Doug Blanchard’s gay Passion paintings. I got 24 separate emails, one for each card sold. Praise God!
