"Princess Pocahontas and John Rolfe" 3-D Painting

Artist Jay Rolfe is shown here yesterday painting one of his new 3-D shaped stretched canvas paintings of "Princess Pocahontas and John Rolfe." As you may know from history, Princess Pocahontas married John Rolfe, not John Smith whom she met as a child, on April 5, 1614 in Jamestown, Virginia. They had one son, Thomas Rolfe, born January 30, 1615 (by coincidence, Jay Rolfe's date of birth is also January 30!). Jay Rolfe decided to create this painting after a visit to Jamestown, Virginia, this spring. Rolfe plans 3 "Princess Pocahontas and John Rolfe" paintings, 8 feet, 6 feet, and 4 feet high respectively.

This is the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's signature style, his innovative 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at
