St. Paul on the Isle of Malta by AuraMajesty
St. Paul on the Isle of Malta
Another modern-dress Biblical piece... this time from the book of Acts.  (I think.... if I'm wrong, please correct me.)

Anyway, when Paul was en route to Rome for his trial, they were shipwrecked on Malta.  Bored, the saint decided to build a fire, and unfortunately for him, there was a viper in the bundle of wood he was carrying.  It bit him, but the Lord was with him, and he went on to write about 75% of the New Testament.

The geeky-looking guy with his hand on Paul's shoulder is St. Luke, author of Acts and the gospel according to St. Luke.  He is believed to be a Greek physician and painter.  A portrait of Jesus attributed to Luke is packed away in St. John Lateran, the cathedral in Rome.  Centuries of washing the painting's feet on Good Friday turned out to be just as bad an idea for preserving it as it sounds.

If you look in the upper left corner, you'll find a Maltese Falcon overlooking the scene.  Because St. Luke is not the only geek involved in this picture.

Our Girl by AuraMajesty
Our Girl
Our beloved dog Lotte suffered an infarction this week and had to be put to sleep.
She came to us as a puppy, after being abandoned. She was the only one of her litter to make it.  It's been a very good thirteen years, but we'll miss her greatly.  We already do.

Wow-wee, how long has it been?
Well, grad-school has kept me crazy busy (and I'm still only driving three wheels these days), but now I finally have some stuff to show.
I notice that whenever I complain to somebody about losing something, as soon as the knowledge hits the air... the item resurfaces.

So....

My black colored pencil has gone walkabout.  I am at my wit's end.  I have pictures to color in, and I don't want to buy a new set of colored pencils just for the black one.  Or buy an expensive single pencil from the art supplies store.

Work with me here, universe.  Please?

Who's at Barnes and Noble?  This writer!

(The book is supposedly elsewhere, too.  No Amazon unfortunately... they only accept it after so many sales.  Who cares?)

I'm a student, and hopeful writer, but that doesn't limit my creativity to just writing. In fact, things get quite ugly if I don't draw for a week or two....
