Children's book illustrator Gennady Spirin is one of my favorites. Here's a scene from The Sea King's Daughter



And this one is from The Lord is My Shepherd:



He's kind of a modern heir to the Flemmish! Wow.
It's the double-edged sword of being lazy and being bored.- Reliant K

The breath of Thine Holy Spirit inspires artists, poets and scientists. The power of Thy supreme knowledge makes them prophets and interpreters of Thy laws, who reveal the depths of Thy creative wisdom. Their works speak unwittingly of Thee. How great art Thou in Thy creation! How great art Thou in man!

Nikos Engonopoulos (1907-1985)

"Simon Bolivar the Brave liberator"

Why do the hills have eyes? Does that symbolize something?

Indeed! I’m rather smitten.

Any idea of what the eyes mean? I suspect it has something to do with the fact he was a Freemason, but otherwise, I can't recall any parallel in his biography.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Mass of St. Gregory, author unknown, but probably an Aztec. Rather a mosaic than a painting, but anyway.
