Brian Kershisnik

Today I wanted to share a few samplings from Brian Kershisnik, an artist from Kanosh, Utah. This is my mom's favorite artist and we first saw his paintings at the BYU art museum. They are stunning. It is so refreshing to look at his work. This is the first first painting we saw when we walked through an exhibit on Jesus Christ. This is a Nativity scene. Stunning in real life. It's HUGE.
I love this painting. I think you could derive a lot of your own meaning from it.

And this reminds me of my Mom.

Nice suggest.! These paintings remind me of early Renaissance figures from artists (like my main man) Giotto. You, Kristine and your mom have SUCH great taste.

Mom (here) is always in need of a little halo repair. Thankfully, there is a way provided!
