A gig from a while back.

Someone just gave me this pic today from a while back.

A Hawaiian Christmas Gig.

I took these with the camera phone. (sorry for the bad quality) There were some really great ones that aren't posted here. I'm bummed that I didn't take enough photos. The others were actually dressed up in a Hawaiian type theme. I'm hoping I run into someone later, that maybe took some photos. I got a few standing ovations @ the beginning... I was like... what? lol.

This kid below was so funny.. he had so many expressions!

The last girl, I didn't take a photo of her.. well, cause I hesitate to put up really young kids up on the internet.. with all the crazies out there.. if you know what I mean. I was happy with the likeness on this one though.

Some Jimmy Pereira Work

I just thought I'd share some cool work by Jimmy. These are two of my favorite pieces of his.

This is his comments about it...
"This is a painting that I did between my first and second year in grad school. It may be somewhat abstract, but it is of Jesus (as a young boy) and his mother Mary. The inspiration for this piece was thinking about what Jesus was like as a young boy (the Bible doesn't say a whole lot about Him as a child). To think that the same arms that Jesus stretched out to embrace his mother out of love were the same ones that would be stretched out to be crucified for us (out of love) is a very sobering thought. It was done in oils and took A LONG TIME to complete. Completing this one was kind of an emotional rollercoaster and a great learning experience. If you have never read the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) before, now that were in the Christmas season, now would be a great time! It will definitley deepen your realization as to what Christmas is all about and WHY and HOW Jesus was born."
If you look closely at the one above.. it says,
