Daniel 1: Before the King

This is the second of five illustrations for the book of Daniel chapter 1 from the Bible.

The king asked the boys many difficult questions, and in every area they were found to be 10 times wiser than all the king’s wise men. God had richly blessed their faithful obedience.

Learning Spanish

I have long wanted to learn other languages and I finally took action to learn some Spanish. As I searched for learning resources I discovered an exceptional course in this video, Language Transfer; it is a platform of free, high-quality audio courses that take you by the hand and teach you to think in and speak new languages.

I have finished the Complete Spanish course and can highly recommend it to anyone serious about learning to speak Spanish. Currently the languages taught are French, Swahili, Italian, Greek, German, Turkish, Arabic, and, of course, Spanish; there’s also a course about Music.

Listening is a separate skill. Visit the following link to see the many methods and resources I have been using for Learning Spanish.

Mihalis the founder of Language Transfer is currently working to teach others to use The Thinking Method he employs for his language courses to teach other subjects intuitively.

I am not affiliated with or sponsored by Language Transfer. This art was created on a volunteer basis.

Promptathon Day 5: Milk Eternal

This is the 5th in a series of 7 drawings for Drawabox’s 2022 Spring Promptathon. You can see the intro to the series in this post.

The prompt for day 5 was Decanter of Drowning. You can see the full prompt on the prompt page. Below is my submission for this day’s prompt.

Milk Eternal

Legend says there was once a land that flowed with milk and honey. Greedy warriors came in search of conquest, glory, and spoil. They cared not for the people nor their way of life. Consumed by their lusts the barbarians hunted the rivers to their source till they found the ancient sanctuary paved with gold. In this most peaceful place were legendary artifacts of every sort, but chief among them were the vessels of jade and gold that flowed with milk eternal. From the sanctuary ran rivers of milk and honey throughout all the land and the people were nourished. The warriors did not come to honour this place, but to plunder and steal. After taking every morsel of value, they destroyed that place and left the land in ruins. At least that’s what the legend says . . .

Ornate milk jug of jade and gold overflows with milk. Jug surrounded by gold bricks and columns covered in vines.
