Artwork of the month: Prayer.

This oil painting at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts is simply pleasing to look at.  It has no real light source, she is simply bathed in light within the darkness.  

Joos Van Cleve
Netherlands, died 1540 or 41
"The virgin on prayer"
1520-1530, oil on panel

Go to the Museum and spend some time with this...
,,,it is pleasant to look at.
