I've been busy last few weeks and have not had time to paint. Was glad to get a moment to tweak some of the details on this tonight before I begin to glaze color. The hands of the adult and the toes of the infant on this piece scramble my brains!

John Piper's book Desiring God is available for an excellent price at the Scripture Truth Book Company for the low price of $10.39
I mention this book because it had a profound influence on me and my understanding of the sovereignty of God and what God requires of us.
From the Publisher:
Scripture reveals that the great business of life is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever. In this paradigm-shattering classic, newly revised and expanded, John Piper reveals that the debate between duty and delight doesn’t truly exist: Delight is our duty. Readers will embark on a dramatically different and joyful experience of their faith...The pursuit of pleasure is not optional. It is essential.

This incredible video from Scientific American spotlights a fantastic ancient mechanical device found on a sunken ship which was able to measure astronomical movements. It was also able to measure the four year interval between ancient olypmic games!
