Illustration Friday: Clutter

Illustration Friday: Clutter

I try not to collect figurines, bric-a-brac or dust collectors. When I do, they gather on the bookshelf above my computer and look down at me reproachfully.

Also blogged.

Take Me Home Dirt Road

Take Me Home Dirt Road

You travel on one dirt road, you feel like you’ve been on them all. Just seems like time moves slow when you’ve got the sun beating down while the dust fills all your pores and nostrils. But if the artist stops and looks long enough, even on the dusty road a painting can be found.

A little later in the day, and down the road a bit, we met-up with some kangaroos… but that’s another story, and another painting.

The Potter

The Potter

Some things are almost universal, they practically transcend every time and place. They are not dependent upon the current fad, fashion or marketing pitch. Such is the potter. The tools of his trade are basically the same today as they have been for millenniums. The potter sits down with the dust of the earth and forms and fashions it into a vessel which has function and practicality, yet possesses rustic beauty. We enjoy watching as they take a clay lump and skillfully transform it.

Several hundred years ‘BC’, the prophet Isaiah wrote, "O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand." His simple words help us understand our world; our place and position in the world; and our relationship to the One who placed us here.

Next time you watch the potter at work, contemplate what you are viewing… and let your understanding of this world expand with the clay.

Got Any Veggies in that Garden… or Just Weeds?

Got Any Veggies in that Garden... or Just Weeds?

I’ve heard some people only like beaches and resorts as their holiday destination. Though I also appreciate those attractions, my family has always balanced our outings with historical areas and places of culture. Okay, I realize you can’t get a rich dark tan inside of a museum, but the valuable knowledge and experience will be with you the rest of your life.

While driving cross-country, we made an unplanned stop at a historical pioneer settlement, which was an authentic replication of the way rural people once lived in America’s early history. As we strolled around the grounds dotted with cabins, barns, places of trade, churches, and all the other structures pertinent to early pioneers, we would stop and carry-on conversations with the ‘inhabitants’ who kept in character by acting as if they didn’t know we were from hundreds of years in their future. It was fun trying to fool them with our modern gadgets, but we also learned much about the way things were done ‘back then’.

The young woman depicted in this painting was busy pulling weeds out of the garden. Her clothes were full and designed to fully protect the skin from the sun’s mid-day rays… in contrast to the way we normally dress in the present era. Her life would have been hard. Her day was spent working from sun-up to sun-down in the dust and the dirt. Traveling to beach resorts and other tourist attractions wouldn’t have been a part of her world at all.

Six hundred miles later, Carol and I were at the beach.

Some crappy dudes. The bottom two are how I think the two people with the worst superpowers would look like. The Dustman causes dust to quickly collect in his immediate area, and DLL Korrupt who makes the surrounding computer/technology devices inexplicably break down in various manners. Both, believe it or not, are powers that belong to yours truly.
