He would never lift a brush without saying a prayer

Fra Angelico (1438-43);
Fresco; Cloister of San Marco, Florence

And now two new important and beautiful paintings by Fra Angelico have been found. [via] They were hanging behind a door in the spare room of an elderly woman’s home in Oxford.

Funny, I think behind my door in my spare room I also have two Frangelicos.

and one bottle of Amaretto, a few maraschino cherries…

I’d trade it all for an image of the newly found paintings. I wonder what kind of energy they gave off, behind her door, in her house all those years? Lucky woman. And maybe I’ll try saying a prayer, before I create art. Not a bad idea.
