Art School Confidential

Anyone who wants to see what most art schools are like, and what most art school students are like needs to watch the movie "Art School Confidential". It was on my "to watch" list for a couple years, and I finally got around to watching it a couple of nights ago. It's quite comical, though you might have had to go through an art program to understand some of the jokes. I can personally say that it is very accurate: it captures all of the different types of folk in art programs, the deep-sounding but meaningless philosophical lingo, the PC crap, etc. Check it out if you are interested.

Cleaning up

Today (my day off) I am going to clean up one of the rooms here at church so I can hopefully do some painting in there. An artist has to have a studio. I haven't painted anything for a month and a half and am anxious to start back again....

Arts Ministries

Why do all of the revisionist churches have arts ministries, and not churches that adhere to the Catholic faith?

I am going to start a gallery at St. Francis, God willing!

Reviving Christianity's Artistic Tradition

This is one of the best things a church could do:

I have been too busy lately with my new parish. Too busy to paint. Too busy to post. When I get settled and into a groove I will probably start doing some landscape paintings of the beautiful SW Virginia landscape.
