    Lucky guy. Skill and a great family.

  3. James says:

    Beautiful work. Thanks for the post.

  4. K says:

    Beautiful work, I wonder how the church was able to pay him for his work, being generally broke a dome artist must take a toll on their finances.

  5. Taupey says:

    The problem with this post is there aren’t enough pictures!

    Ivan Shishman’s paintings are beautiful and fascinating.

    I would pay money to travel, stay and sit and watch this artist paint like this.

    His name is easy to remember, any relation?

    Thanks to everyone involved for this post!

    I think he drew a picture of himslef up there. A lot.

  7. Musa says:

    These are wonderful paintings!

    His wife and little children are so charming.

    I wonder if that’s their home or are they staying at the church? Who is that person laying down, a priest, a family member like mother? This is so intersting.

    Sometimes EnglishRussia is like a lot of foreplay without sex!
    Thanks for delightful foreplay!

    he paints himself everywhere

  9. God Forbids You !! says:

    Although he contributed the creation many beautiful church paintings, Will God forgive his occasional drinking when that man stands before God?

    (P.S) I don’t know the restiction of Russian Orthodox Church for its believer. But Dringing is not forbidden?
    To my knowledge, I read in bible that drinking consists of “sin”. If I am right, almost every adult russian would be the offender of God’s forbidding!!(Because almost all of them drinks) Then everyone has to predict his or her time of death and has never fail to repent before priest about one’s sin of lifelong drinking to avoid Hell!

      We don’t know what he drink and why.

    • Musa says:

      That’s absolutely beautiful Jim-Bob!

      • Taupey says:

        That’s very well said Jim-Bob!

        For Ivana Benderova Talking Beaver Cyber-Bully,

        I see nothing funny about what “God Forbids You!!” Said at all!

        Musa has her own personal beliefs about God in which she let’s no one define!

        She’s a defender not an offender like you always trying to create something to fight about!

        You obviously have some anger management and mental health issues you need to seek help for!

        If you don’t like what I say here, too bad for you! As far as I’m concerned, you can just go fock yourself!

        Have Fun! :D

    Beautiful work. Thanks for the post.

  11. nihil says:

    Awesome iconography. As far as the non-sequitor reference to drinking. I must remind the readers of the wedding at Cana.

  12. Old Timer says:

    Jesus was a fun loving man.

    He turned water into wine. Who the hell wants to drink water when there is wine?

    Buy yourself big extra strength enema and use for your problem. Don’t enjoy it too much, remember it’s not a toy!

  15. Taupey says:

    Your Honor, I rest my case!

  16. Mónica says:

    Nice!! Nice!! Thank you…

    my best friend has been in an Anger Management class for 2 months now, he improved a lot when dealing with anger.;`’

    Anger Management is necessary to prevent raging men in the streets.-*.

  19. most of us would need some anger management therapy if we are on very stressful jobs,`*

    i think the church artistism is boring, the same faces and the same themes all the time – christ and god, it’s not an art, it’s a waste of time in a world of illusions.
