Beguiling! This is a moody, haunting, & beautifully atmospheric work. It speaks to Mr. Shanabrook’s imagination & artistic mastery that he can apply achromatic colors of graduated intensity to a 6 x 8 canvas to create depth, texture, & ambience, as he has with the evocative, “The Shadow Heart”. This painting is an enigma - dark & seductive. There appears to be many details hidden within the texture of the painting, but do they actually exist? A study of any small section of the canvas seems to prove the details elusive and, in some places, illusory. The great edifice that’s presented is a heart personified, containing chambers & walls, & a chimney looking much like a brick aorta, wrapped in ethereal ghostly wisps of smoke; it’s a structure as formidable & imposing as the Louvre.

It's glorious. The colors grabbed me when I saw them, and in person are even better. Just beautiful. I took the painting to a custom framer and we selected a frame that fits the painting perfectly. I'm very happy with my painting.
