Who painted this?



I hate it when people use art online without attribution.   Anyway - this is THE best rendering of Solanus Casey I have ever seen, as well as THE best composition I have ever seen.  Who is the artist?  Anyone know?  Source.

I have to go out and mow the lawn.  I'll never paint again.

  2. Brett Edenton, that's who.
    I agree, though I have been guilty of it myself.

  5. I am not an artist, but it sort of looks like a non-icon "icon". I like the barely perceptible fiddle, which according to his talent, should be barely perceptible.

  6. How beautiful!! The brown monotone is sublime. It reminds me of aged leather. :) Venerable Solanus Casey, pray for us.
