    • Morning Lucille ๐Ÿ™‚ Looks like you’re ready for a sunny, happy day!

      Here are 2 more paintings from Pere Borrell del Caso. I thought they should go together:

        • Hi Czarina ๐Ÿ™‚
          I put this in later yesterday ’cause I forgot in the morning. He mostly did paint portraits, but they were destroyed. I would have loved to have seen not just them, but especially the religious murals.
          “He known for his trompe lโ€™oeil paintings. He also painted portraits, which made up the bulk of his work, and created religious murals in the Nazarene style in Barcelona, Girona and Castellar del Vallรจs. These, however, WERE ALL DESTROYED DURING THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR.”

          Take care in that heat. It’s been, and will continue to run, about 90 degrees up here, which is over normal, but bearable as long as the humidity does not get high. I could NEVER live where you do. I would literally be dead in days. I don’t know how you do it.

        Wonderful art, G&C! How terrible that his other works were lost. I found this painting listed as a self-portrait…

        Have a lovely day!

        • Oh Thank you Lucille! It’s sometimes difficult to find a painting of an artist. It is especially nice to see such a nice painting of him since most of his paintings were destroyed.

    Mornin’ Lucille, G-dandcountry, and everyone. ๐Ÿ™‚ Took my doggie for a walk early and it has been an hour and I am still hot and sweaty. It is going to be a humid scorcher for sure.

    Possibly this will be a picture of Aus’s new friend, Loki. If not, I’ll try again.

    Prayer shared by “Betty” on “Walk Toward The Fire” post at CTH:

    Here is an old prayer I learned a long time ago, it was the prayer of an old, old lady who lived at the edge of the Superior State Forest as long as anyone could remember, she was going to face a judge over some sort of civil matter when she recited the prayer for the person who taught it to me. I hope it blesses you Sundance.

    Spirit of the living God, that dwells within me, go before me, light the way and open every door. Holy Spirit tell me just what to say.

    When I begin to this prayer I think of the living God as galaxys of stars and I imagine them swirling within me like a tornado, โ€œSpirit of the living God, that dwells with in me.โ€

    I swirl them faster and faster till finally I throw my arms out in front of me and say โ€“ โ€œGO before me, light the way and open every door.โ€ (you can send the Spirit anywhere you wish, or need to). Then after a few moments to calm I ask, โ€œHoly Spirit tell me just what to sayโ€.

    State of Louisiana keeps running this commercial praising the state for its COVID response, how it’s the ‘model’ for responsive and effective suppression of the virus. Meanwhile the state’s returned to its position as one of the most infected spots in the world.

    Don’t know how the state keeps on running them except to try and ‘praise’ the people into doing what they need to do but if the fear of infection won’t convince them what makes the state think telling them they’re OK will?

    This spike occurred just as soon as the state allowed the bars to open, it was immediately back to Louisiana business as usual. Folks just couldn’t resist the chance to PAR-TAY and get in each others’ faces. State’s closed the stand-alone bars and bars in restaurants and after a few weeks working the staffs are back on the streets.

    Two articles posted at thegatewaypundit today by Joe Hoft. The first one at 8:38am and the 2nd at 9:30am. Not that we didn’t already know this, but it’s great that another nation has concurred with our findings.

    A new study just completed by Tulane University shows that ythe Coronavirus particles can stay suspended and infectious for some 16 hours in an ideal environment. WHO, who’s been poo-pooing the idea without really studying it is still not answering the study and the CDC says it will review the study and revise its recommendations.

    Looks like President Trump may commute Roger Stone’s sentence. Some are reporting on Twitter that he already has, but I’m waiting for firm confirmation.

    Heavy thunderstorms came through. Sewer backed up again into my basement. I have at least a foot down there and my furnace and water heater are probably trashed again. At least I have insurance this time, but a $1,000 deductible.
