That is gorgeous!
Tom Wilson: Rather unusual, I thought.

Wonderful image, Tom!
Tom Wilson: A very unusual colour palette!
This painting is just surreal Tom!
Tom Wilson: It is rather strange, isn't it?

All very nice too Tom
Tom Wilson: An odd painting, I thought.
Well preserved and presented to us, Tom.

This is wonderful, what a great scene and I love those (gold)decorations around the painting.
Tom Wilson: Very unusual - can't find out anything about the artist, but from other things said, it seems to be 20th century.

Modern and traditional in one, Tom
Tom Wilson: You got it, Lisl.
I will stick my neck out and say that it is not by El Greco, but there is something of his style and tones used about it Tom.
Tom Wilson: You're right there, Chad - couldn't be EG since it portrays the event that resulted in the shrine. I can't find out who painted it, but I think it is 20th century
I am attracted to the gold. It steals the eye.
Tom Wilson: It does indeed - especially with the subdued colours of the painting.

Your picture (including presentation) honours the painting.

Heh, I find it to be an interesting concept that the likes of bishops kneel before a woman. Must have hurt their backs really bad grin
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis.
I must admit to not being familiar with Fatima but I do like this painting.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian - I can't find mention of the artist anywhere!
