THE OUTDOOR ARTIST

THE LILIES OF THE FIELD

WAIT A LITTLE LONGER

FIRE & BLOOD IN THE STREETS

This is a rerun of a post written on 5/29/2010 during another time of protest and injustice. Pools of crimson stain the streets. People running, hiding, covering themselves and those near them, Fear ensues, then pain, followed by anger and rage, … Continue reading

GALLERY – WATER

Sheets of frozen shards slice through the mountain, On its path, the ice turns into glistening, fresh, cool water, Crashing, Rolling over jagged rock, Bubbling and steaming, As it falls to still waters below, The finger of God, Pushing it ever forward, Cutting … Continue reading
