  5. That's an awesome contour capture of Bernini's work. I actually love Bernini. I sketched tons of his sculptures when I was in Rome last.

    Macus Romoero: I didn't know that Bernini did crack. That explains the St. Theresa sculpture. I didn't think nuns were allowed to do that...even with angels.

    Lori Witzel: Want to hear a really bad pun & all around general rule to live by? Sure you do; When in Roma, don't get on Minerva.

  7. Oooooh, I really like this one! (I like the other ones too but this one is special!)
    RYN: I'm not "getting out there" with my blogs. I have a new obsession: flickr.com. I actually did some western art shows and had a few articles in western magazines. This is on the back burner these days unfortunately...
