  3. Gotta love the clergy. I had one priest complain he didn't like the way he looked in a video...What's that about? He was dressed.

    I love the Adam and Eve.

  5. That's much better. They are far more like the nuns I know than that last bunch. In fact, I think the painter of the second piece probably hangs around the same convents I do.

  6. Do you think the first one is a picture of the farmer's daughter advertising her father's wheat crop?

    Nice selection, Pagan. I know it's something you work at.

  10. Thank you, all!

    Susan: ha! I suppose it is a biblical image? Otherwise, it does make quite an advertisement!
