It's a beautiful painting. I almost used it today. I can't believe how teeny it is. How did he paint such detail on such a small painting? It looks a lot like some of your paintings.
I wish I painted so well.
"your King is returning.”Joyful and glorious will that day be. So many who suffer now for the sake of His name will be lifted up and their tears wiped away. The forgotten and persecuted will rejoice because their vindication is near.I hope and pray I may be found worthy to live to see the Lord return in glory.
I love this image; we have a copy in our dining room.
I only discovered it last night. I really love it too. I was surprised that there were some private revelations attached to it - but that site is also where the artist discusses his work.
I've seen icons like that in Russia and in Minneapolis.
Me too - it's a common type I think - especially in the Balkans and Greece. As you know icons are not original and always follow the prototype. This is not an icon however, according to the artist - which I am very happy about. I enjoy religious paintings.Someone sent a link to another site regarding the so-called 'locutionist' and evidently there may be a problem there - so I removed the quote as well as the link to that particular site.It's a magnificent rendering nonetheless, and the painter is impressive. Sorry I led people to believe I was interested in the locutions or supposed messages - I think the image speaks for itself.
The link to the warning regarding the locutionist:http://www.catholiclane.com/deception-for-our-times-questioning-anne-a-lay-apostle/I hate it when that happens.
I don't pay attention to locutionists. Or liturgists or any of those guys.What?
That's the best way to go I think.
From the image: what a peaceful reign! We need that.
To be sure the image is beautiful and venerable - it was made independent of the apostolate which adopted it - nothing wrong with it as an image of devotion. It seems to be the painter is very sincere, devout and humble.
