John Marchetti - Beauty in Art
These two paintings are called Frescos. Frescos are special because they are painted directly on plaster of a wall. This is important because unlike normal paintings, they last hundreds of years. The fact that an artist was able to paint them directly on a wall with all their details is simply beautiful. Their beauty is clearly shown here. When I look at them it reminds me of angels or guardian angels in heaven, looking down and watching us from above. They are truly breathtaking.
