On a cold Saturday, I went to the DIA for a lecture about the Holy paintings on display at the DIA, and it was very interesting. It allowed me to gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Catholic view of religious art. The guest speaker was a Catholic Priest and he was very interesting and funny, and I quite liked him. So much so that I just visited his blog to see what it was about and I started to read about his prayers for the people of the Ukraine as they are in the middle of a horrible conflict in Kiev. Then in the next blog post, he posted something homophobic and I suddenly lost interest. Why oh why do so-called compassionate and loving people openly hate and disrespect homosexuals? I'll never understand it.
Anyway, some pictures I took at the museum were up close shots to concentrate on a certain view in the painting, providing a fresh perspective of paintings I love. Here are a few of my favorites.
