repels/fascinates i. nuns.


catholic imagery has always repelled and fascinated me. when something does this, i'm obsessed forever. there's something about nuns in general that reminds me of madness, that devoutness to the unknown seems something so unreachable to me. i'll be posting other things this week, leading up to halloween and the lifting of the veil, that repels/ fascinates me.

thanks for this post. i have a fascination with nuns too, but when people ask, i am unable to articulate why. i think part of it is what you said here, though. i hadn't seen these paintings before either! so cool...

Shawn is an amazingly talented artist. Not only is he super talented but humble too. His work ethic along with this talent has taken him far. I've known Shawn since art school & I'm always happy to see his work featured on peoples blogs. Thanks for sharing with those who might not know about his work yet. Have a great week.
