Happy Easter!

He has Risen, he has Risen indeed!

Happy Easter to everyone.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!

Best wishes go out to everyone for the coming year. Thank you for taking the time to pass my way, and to those who have shared your thoughts. I appreciate the new and old “virtual” friends who feel very much more than that. For those who have not seen any snow, some nice pictures in the video,


World Press Photo of the Year – North Korea

While we prepare for the upcoming holidays, some with a discouraged heart, this photo is a reminder of the many blessings we have. I have always enjoyed photography, and this is an excellent as well as a disturbing slide show, worth the time to visit, and a reminder of this world we live in..

This one was taken in Pyongyang. More here. Click on Photo to enlarge.

Wikipaintings: The Entire History of Art Online

it’s a Friday, and after just doing my earlier post today -see below- I felt a need to be a bit more upbeat from the doom and gloom. I latched on to this one and what a great site for students and other who have an interest in art. So here we go. Have a good day and enjoy!
Wikipaintings: The Encyclopedia of Fine Arts, now in Beta version.
“The project aims to create high-quality, most complete and well-structured online repository of fine art. We hope to make classical art a little more accessible and comprehensible, and also want to provide a new form of interaction between contemporary artists and their audience. In the future we plan to cover the entire history of art — from cave artworks to the new talents of today.
The project is non-profit. The site will not contain advertising in any form and its creators do not intend to make profit from the activities or sale of the project. Initial work on the establishment and maintenance of the site is paid from funds of the initiative group, but later we hope to cover the costs through donations from users.” Carpe Diem
