Apostle Pain in Prison as an immensely complex painting, full of symbolism and details. Apostle Paul is sitting on a bed in his dark and precarious prison cell. The Apostle is holding a very large book and a pen. He doesn’t look frustrated or even imprisoned, but extremely concentrated and concerned with his writing.
Loose pages are spread all over his bed. On his right side (left to the viewer) there is another large book and some sort of scarf or turban. On top of these, there is a dark leather satchel bag, commonly used by merchants and mercenaries. It’s possible to see another opened book behind all these objects. In front of them, there is a sword, a symbol of Saint Paul, leaning on the bed and onto the objects.
There is a set of chains tied to the foot of the bed and they run down all the way to the hay on the ground. There is a rock right in the middle of the cell where Apostle Paul rests one barefoot on top of his untied shoe. The other foot, with the shoe put on, is resting on the floor. He wears several layers of clothes. A white shirt underneath everything, only details from its sleeves are showing. Then, a yellow heavier shirt or coat. It’s not possible to know because over all of this he is rolled up on a heavy gray fabric, like a blanket.
Behind him, there are some wood and brick details on the wall, with some apparent bricks and cracks on the wall.
On the top left, there is a window - one of the most important elements of the painting. The window shines a golden symbolic light onto the apostle which shines like an aura or a halo around him. This light not only defines the color palette of the piece but also sets an atmosphere for the whole painting.
He has very pale skin, some wrinkles on his forehead. One of his hands holds the book and pen. The other one holds his chin, showing concern and concentration. He is represented in its most popular form, with long white beard and hair. There is a big contrast between the conditions of the prison and his lack of acknowledgment to his state.

meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.
If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.
