"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Rainy Day Painting Exhibition

Photos of two of my recent paintings are up for your viewing pleasure at Up Your Street.
(The Cappa painting was not inspired by Fr. Z's recent blogpost - I had this one in mind for quite a long time.)

  1. is that who i think it is?

  2. Paint some sunshine and bunnies, I need that!


  3. Terry...I hope I didn't offend you with my reference to anther blog...I was just bein' stupid (like I said, my mother always thought I was trying to annoy her when I "stirred the pot"!).
    Great painting of "you-know-who":<)!
    And bunnies and sunshine would be great (thanks CofA!).
    I hope you can tolerate my musings...

    who is it?

  5. Father you never offend me - ever.

    Either do you Cath - bunnies and sunshine - what are you on?

    Anonymous - Archbishop Burke - I painted the face and wave from a photo of him in a miter and Mass vestments - the photo could have been from his installation in St. Louis. I loved his obvious friendliness and kind expression. I'm not making fun of him here - just having fun with the cappa. There is a photo of him in a cappa magna but it is more serious.

  6. Thanks, Terry...really:<)!

  7. Hey, I didn't ask you for a rainbow! :-)

  8. I could use some bunnies and sunshine too..Utah just about got blown off the face of the Earth today..

    Bird nest causalty on my front porch..poor birdies...I think they were the bluebirds. Do they have blue eggs with spekles on them??


  9. Don't get sashy Cathy!

    Oh! Oh! I'm Larry!


  10. Sara - sounds like robin's eggs to me - but maybe blue bird eggs are blue and speckled.

  11. Somehow my name gets mentioned in a combox, and,as usaul, I have no recollection of what I had said to deserve the recognition.

    Must be getting old.

    Oh - nice painting, even if it doesn't have a rainbow.

  12. The birdie eggs were house finches...caught a sight of the female looking wistfully at her nest on the ground...

    Maybe they'll try again??


  13. Sara - keep the eggs and let them dehydrate.

    Larry - you just say funny and clever stuff and I thought my comment kind of sounded like something you would say.

  14. Terry - I'm flattered.
