Castle Mural

Filed under: Fantasy,MURALS,PAINTINGS — Colby @ 3:13 pm

That’s me in the mid stages of painting a mural in a nursery room. The mural covers three full walls. You can see part of one wall which has a desert theme, sort of. Each wall works into the next one. The castle wraps around the three sides of the column.

“Harold in Italy” Cartoon

Filed under: CARTOONS — Colby @ 2:07 pm

This was a quickie cartoon drawn mostly on the computer. It was intended as a simple gift for a friend on his birthday but he enjoyed it so much that he included it on his “Harold in Italy” website.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

One of my heroes, Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran theologian who could not ignore the abuses by the Nazis. He left Germany and spent time in England and in the United States but returned to his homeland to participate in the resistance. He was eventually arrested in 1943 and executed just before the end of the war.

The three colors represent those of the German flag.

Backyard Croquet Lesson

Granted, if you’re going to play croquet you need to mow the grass a little shorter but the three year old grandson didn’t know it mattered.
