Encourage one another and build one another up. Pray without ceasing. Test everything. Keep what is good. Avoid all evil. -1 Thess 5:11,17,21,22
Ivan Shishkin born in Russia in 1832. He died in 1898.
Even in his lifetime, he was regarded as one of the masters of Russian painters.
To me, Shishkin's paintings are the visual equivalent of comfort-food...High-end, gourmet comfort-foods
Just gorgeous. 100 years later and we get haphazard crap as an excuse for art.
