LE SUITE GESU: TOOK A DAY OFF

LE SUITE GESU: TOOK A DAY OFF

Wow, I slept until 10:30 Saturday! Pooped from so much work, both from the day job, night job, and three major studies in two weeks. But things are coming together as I get frayed at the edges. Har har. Today I got the Crowning with Thorns needle…

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING OF THE CROSS STUDY: DAY 3

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING OF THE CROSS STUDY: DAY 3

I’ve upped the ante. Something is taking off here, ascending, if I may be so bold. Of course, I’m inspired. I’ve answered Barnett Newman’s question “What do you paint?” My subject matter is not neutral, as Cezanne’s was. I can’t project my intentions onto a…

May is the month for Mary, the Mother of God. I will this month begin an Assumption of Mary that will be released on August 15, the Feast of the Assumption. The studies and progress can be followed on this blog. I am working randomly through the…

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING OF THE CROSS STUDY: DAY 1

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING OF THE CROSS STUDY: DAY 1

Today, as I write this, is the feast day of St. Catherine of Siena. She is one of my favorite saints, because she spoke to God as a friend. We should all seek to be a friend of God. I began this Carrying of the Cross as…

LE SUITE GESU: WHAT DO WE PAINT?

LE SUITE GESU: WHAT DO WE PAINT?

In a documentary on the New York School, Barnett Newman states the problem of post-war art: what do you paint? I think the same problem exists today. Post-modernsim has created a strange conundrum in that every voice is equal. Everyone has something to say, but…

LE SUITE GESU: GETTING IT ON THE PLATE

LE SUITE GESU: GETTING IT ON THE PLATE

What a weekend. Two popes canonized. It doesn’t get much better than that! But back to the task at hand, to create etchings. Sunday afternoon after Mass I took the time to put the Crowning with Thorns/Mocking of Christ image onto its copper plate, 9x12in. I…

LE SUITE GESU: DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY NOTES

LE SUITE GESU: DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY NOTES

Today Pope John XIII and Pope John Paul II are canonized. They were already saints, forged in the lives they both led. Lives of holiness and an openness to the Spirit of God. I was at a marriage retreat in March, and as we were…

LE SUITE GESU: EASTER SATURDAY NOTES

LE SUITE GESU: EASTER SATURDAY NOTES

Tomorrow is a red letter day. Two great popes are canonized on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 27th. How very fitting that John Paul II is officially declared a saint on the Feast of Divine Mercy, a devotion began by the visitation of Jesus Christ to…

LE SUITE GESU: EASTER FRIDAY NOTES

LE SUITE GESU: EASTER FRIDAY NOTES

Looking at the landscape, I’ve pondered why I must do what I’m doing. I’d be something of an automaton if I didn’t wonder about that. But I’m a teacher. I deal with adolescents daily, and I understand what is happening to the culture. We are…

LE SUITE GESU: EASTER THURSDAY NOTES

LE SUITE GESU: EASTER THURSDAY NOTES

It is quite impossible to love the Blessed Virgin Mary too much, for we can never match how much Jesus Christ loves her. She is, as Wordsworth writes, our tainted nature’s solitary boast. The Virgin Mother! whose virgin bosom was uncrost With the least shade…
