"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

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.
