Franklin draws his creative spirit from divine inspiration. His contemporary-style paintings focus on religious and cultural subjects brought to life by colorful pastels and an artful combination of light and shadow. He borrows from world-renowned artists such as El Greco, Velaquez, and Botticelli, incorporating their classic vision to form his own. Since 1990, Franklin has lived in Texas, and paints subjects close to his heart and home: the missions and churches of the Southwest. His soulful paintings are collected throughout the Southwest United States, in private and corporate collections.
