Who can deny it?

What does an artist do?

This feels so true sometimes...

Hello! I work with Ruminate, a nonprofit quarterly print magazine of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and visual art that engages the Christian faith, ministering to artists, writers, and readers across the nation. My editor came across Rock and Slings feature piece on daniel Baltzer and saw that he had founded the Limner Society - what a great idea! We thought your readers might be interested our inaugural Visual Arts Prize -  Visit website for complete guidelines Questions?

nice quote...

“Creation as applied to human authorship seems to me to be an entirely misleading term. We rearrange elements He has provided. There is not a vestige of real creativity de novo in us. Try to imagine a new primary color, a third sex, a fourth dimension, or even a monster that does not consist of existing animals stuck together. Nothing happens. And that is surely why our works never mean what we intended: because we are recombining elements made by Him and already contain His meanings.” ~ C.S. Lewis

It's been a while...

There hasn't been a post here for a while.  I often wonder if anyone really reads this blog, but despite this, i wanted to share something I read recently that I think gives good perspectives on what we are about... Faith Imitates Art by Enuma Okoro It seems that I've always experienced the arts as a medium for encountering God. I remember when I was just a girl, for example, flipping through the extra large illustrated children's Bible.

Mark Neuenschwander

Visited with 2010 Limner visiting artist, Mark Neuenschwander and his family this past Sunday. The Limner Society was able to help him with the recovery of his equipment in a small way. We would like to continue to encourage Joplin artists to make art that comforts, heals, and brings refreshing to the community.

As I leave...

I am sitting in the KC airport reflecting on the trip and I thought this picture was an appropriate sentiment.

Last full day in Joplin

Well, we didn't break our back today. We had great fellowship with Christ's Church of Joplin, then spent some time with Mark Neuenschwander and his family before heading back to the host home to chill. Tomorrow morning we drive to KC then fly home. What a great trip.
