    iPainting: The Sahara Lions Series

    I love technology.  When used productively, it offers all kinds of options.  People criticize filters on photographs, but artists have used various “filters” for years. Van Gough painted two versions of his famous haystacks. Long before Warhol, and his variation soup cans, Gilbert Stuart painted 130 variations of his portrait of Washington. By the way, he never finished the first one.  It was called The Athenaeum, he used it as a template. You’ve seen it though, it’s the picture of President Washington on the one dollar bill. In keeping with that, I painted a simple picture of a Sahara Lion using a different digital tool than my iPad mini.  As…

    I Don’t Know, And That’s Ok

    Psalms 133 1 LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me. 2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul [is] even as a weaned child. 3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.

    The Italian Hatmaker: I Wouldn’t Have To Ask

    “Then we will make camp here. Princess, after we and your soldiers setup camp, they will tie Ethan and myself up. If either King investigates, they will find their cousin a hero. You will give us to whichever King arrives first. This will rescue your life, and buy us the time.” Giuseppe didn’t wait for an argument, he simply started gathering wood for a fire. Ethan froze in place. As the Italian Hatmaker walked into the woods beside their new camp, the Princess spoke to Ethan. “He’s brave isn’t he? To volunteer for captivity is gallant.” Ethan looked at her, aroused from his shock. “It’s better than dying isn’t your…
