Born in a humble, stone, farm house in the Tuscan hills of Italy, he died at 89 in a rented apartment in the city of Rome. One of the all time giants in the world of art, Michelangelo Buonarroti, never owned a home. The Pieta could be called his "career launcher." He never wanted for commissions after the sculpture was unveiled. He excelled in 4 arenas of art and each includes exceptional feats ... clearly more than any human being could reasonably achieve in one lifetime. And, it is interesting that he spent his entire life struggling with the thoughts that he would not live long enough to create a work good enough to please God. Messengers of Miracles looks at the life of the artist, the life of the Virgin Mary, and the issues that still surround Mary's life ... did she have other children? was she really assumpted into heaven? what sort of mother was she to Jesus? Many questions... . The book presents both noble individuals in honest, but respectable ways. A good read!!!!
My background is art-related ... degrees, vocations, avocations, happiest times. So, using my writing and photography talents to produce books about art, artists, inspirational concepts, and history gives me great pleasure and satisfaction. My web site lists the topics I currently lecture on to groups of all sizes and in many different parts of the world. Take a look!
