Creation of Adam

Every time that I have visited Vatican museum I am always amazed and in awe of  the Sistine chapel and the magnificent work of Michelangelo. 

The Creation of Adam is a fresco painting by Michelangelo , which forms part of the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling, painted c. 1508–1512. It illustrates the Biblical creation narrative from the Book of Genesis in which God gives life to Adam, the first man.

Are We Missing Something?

2017 California Cross Country Trip

On a recent visit to Downtown Las Vegas, I was able to watch  the Fremont Street Experience, which offers free nightly shows featuring 12.5 million lights and 550,000 watts of amazing sound. As I stood there watching the show I could not help but notice so many people attempting to capture this awesome show on their phones. I thought to myself wouldn’t sometimes  it be better if we just put down the phone and just take in the experience. I think at times we miss out when we don’t.

 

Solomon’s Castle

 

I recently had the opportunity to visit this unique place out in the middle of nowhere. Mr. Solomon was a very eclectic, humorous and creative artist transforming ordinary items into beautiful artwork.

Located in the tiny town of Ona in Hardee County, Florida, Howard Solomon’s unique home is three stories tall and covers 12,000 square feet. This medieval-style castle was built entirely by Solomon himself, utilizing reclaimed and recycled materials. The shiny exterior of the castle was made from discarded printing plates, and the “bricks” on the road to the front door were stamped onto the cement.
