Sleight of Brush

What's old is new again.  City planners are experimenting with a centuries-old artistic technique -- a trick, if you like -- that could have very pragmatic value today.

The Ambassadors
Hans Holbein

 "Holbein’s twisted skull is a version of the traditional artistic device of the momento mori (or 'remember you must die'), used by painters and sculptors to elevate their works into spiritually teachable moments . . . . "

Readers love brother Jim's thriller:

"This novel picks you up by the scruff of your neck and doesn't let you go until the final pages!" VB, London 

"An amazing tale...that you cannot put down!" ML, Georgia

"A powerful exploration of real-life horror and psychological turmoil."  JC, Illinois
