I like “boring” and stuffy old still-life paintings and fancy, ornate frames — the more gilded and ostentatious, the better. I enjoy a good mystery and I believe art is something that should make you think, and even teach you a thing or two, if you’re willing to expend a little energy. Painting is my career and my passion. But my one true love is Jesus. I draw a huge dividing line between Organized Religion and Christ. Organized Religion is man twisting the Word of God so that he might play god over others. I believe that God is TRUTH and LOVE made visible in flesh: His name is Jesus.
I don’t know why people shy away from discussing things such as religion. How are we to learn what we can’t talk about? Well, I love to talk about it, so talk about it we shall. The first Sunday of every month, readers can expect my Sunday Scripture posts: Themed Bible verses paired with a selection of classic paintings. Art and the Bible — two of my favourite things! 🎨
I live in Northern Ontario, Canada, where the winters seem endless, but the 3 months of summer are paradise. I like 50’s television, 80’s music, Hammer horror, British comedy, vintage Nancy Drew novels, Elvira, Scooby Doo, pin-up art, wrestling, polka dots, and have a penchant for Vampire lore, books and films. As a proud Canadian, I believe in the gratuitous addition of the letter “u” to random words, and I like vinegar on my poutine. I also speak a touch of French. Mais oui, mon ami! 🍁
My two pieces of advice in life: Don’t do to anyone else what you wouldn’t appreciate having done to you; and when it comes to finding a mate, wait for your true love, as long as it takes. Because it’s better to be alone than to be stuck with the wrong person. Don’t marry a person you can live with, marry the one you can’t live without. 💗
