Amazing, and beautifully captured - nice light!

I picture you lying on the floor for this one, Tom
Tom Wilson: Nope, just bending backwards - fortunately I'm still supple smile

The Almighty above a vortex of cherubs
Tom Wilson: I guess that's what it is, Chris.
Is that Jesus in the center falling down to earth from heaven above??? Oh my.
Tom Wilson: Could be, Ginnie.

That is a fantastic ceiling Tom with some good foreshortening.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Chad - this room is called the Heaven Closet and the ceiling shows Christ ascending into heaven.
Jolies décorations.
Tom Wilson: They certainly are!

... and the trumpets will sound!
Picture well taken.
Tom Wilson: Loudly, I guess - thanks, Louis.
There is certainly some beautiful work there.
Tom Wilson: A very fine piece of work.
I hear music and then see the horns. Wonderful!
Tom Wilson: Welcoming Christ ascending into heaven.
Full of fat little cherubs...
Tom Wilson: The painter was turning them out on a production line! smile

I know I should not say this but it looks like he is skateboarding and does an 'one-eighty'.... indeed a lot of fat babies, however a great painting. Can you image being up there for months???
Tom Wilson: He, he! There's no information, unfortunately, in the guidebook, on the painter, or how long it took to produce. The room it is in is called, for obvious reasons, the Heaven Closet smile
jolie peinture! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Merci, Jean Pierre.
