Easter weekend seems a good time to remember that miracles do happen - every day. Especially when we make them happen - with determination, courage, effort, and stamina. An example of this is the work of artist Paul Smith (1921-2007).
The intricacy and detail of Paul's work is mind-boggling. I was first introduced to Paul's art in a Facebook post, originally shared by The Idealist Revolution. The photo appeared to be of a black and white drawing of a lion and a cub. The Facebook caption read:
“My jaw dropped to the floor when I realized what this image really was. Wow.”Not seeing anything out of the ordinary, curiosity go the best of me, and I clicked on it.
Here's the photo:
It was my turn for my jaw to drop. An awesome picture - but truly miraculous work of art, when you find out how it was created!
|The only thing I can create on a typewriter are letters, words and paragraphs. I am in awe of Paul Smith's talent!|
The next time I am suffering from writers block, I am going to think of Paul.
I know that not everyone who reads this blog celebrates Easter, but to everyone who does, Happy Easter! To everyone else, Happy weekend!
If you still need an Easter dessert, take a peek at the post I published yesterday, which featured Mango-Peach Blackberry Pie and a link to my recipe for Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie
