Children Throwing Snowballs

I love doing these mezzotints with multiple speakers (the last one was the Shakespeare scene with da sord). Note the Biblical reference!

(William Ward, Children Throwing Snowballs, 1785)

Ecstasy of St. Francis

Did you guys miss me? I hope my sudden decision to peace out for a week didn't offend anybody. Anyway, here is something fresh for your Monday morning...looking at the fresco cycle this is from (the Renunciation of Worldly Goods probably being the most famous), I could probably spend all week with Giotto, but, eh. One is probably enough. Here is St. Francis upstaging his own monks at a party for Jesus!

(Giotto di Bondone, Ecstasy of St. Francis, 1297-1300)
