I, God, have filled him with the Spirit of God,
with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts-

(Exodus 31:3)

Not everyone can do everything.
It is a lie to just believe in yourself, and it is a delusional fantasy to have the thought you can do anything.
Everyone is created by God with weaknesses and strengths. Blessed is the man or woman that can rejoice in both while humbly giving glory to God.
Current propaganda is to not be humbled by one’s weakness while pretending our strengths are unlimited, such is the silliness of mankind.
Whether it is a child drawing on a forbidden wall, or a skilled artist being paid to paint a canvas all that is fine art should be celebrated. Uh, although, someone is probably going to get punished.

Do you see a man skilled in his work?
He will serve before kings; he will not serve before obscure men.
(Proverbs 22:29)

William Bailey: Looking Through Time
Yale University Art Gallery (CT)
through January 5, 2020

“William Bailey: Looking Through Time” considers the career of William Bailey (b. 1930, BFA 1955, MFA 1957), the Kingman Brewster Professor Emeritus of Art at Yale University, through a focused survey of the artist’s paintings, drawings, and prints. Special emphasis is given to Bailey’s still life paintings in oil, including the Yale University Art Gallery’s “Still Life –Table with Ochre Wall” (1972), an outstanding example of the artist’s signature style.
