Capturing Beauty: Miss Pork Cuisine

The other day I had a chance to visit the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Even though most of the exhibits remain the same, I like to go at least once every year to refresh my experience and my memory. As a Read More ›

On the Easel

By Jamin Still

This frigid January day finds me working on a number of pieces. I’m rotating them out to let the paint dry and to keep myself engaged. Doing this also gives me time to mentally work through any problems that I run into as I’m painting. Read More ›

From Every Tribe and Nation, No Need for Space Colonies
