“We arrive at the truth, not by the reason only, but also by the heart.”
– Blaise Pascal
4″ x 6″ Watercolor Postcard
Not exactly what you expected, eh? ha ha ha
Don’t forget that Friday, October 29th, we are going to post Halloween pictures (or whatever) on our blogs, then link back here so that we can go look at everyone’s art.
It’s Halloween week, so I’m going to have some fun! I had a busy weekend, so the only painting I got done was a quick 30 minute anniversary card for some friends that were coming over for a shrimp boil.
Believe it or not, that was my authentic first shrimp boil. We cooked new potatoes, corn on the cob and 7 lbs of shrimp, all in a big pot. Then you just put it all out on the table and everybody digs in. It was really fun and delicious! Thanks, Bobby, for bringing the food!
About Blaise Pascal
Blaise Pascal was not only a mathematician and philosopher, he was also an inventor, having created the hydraulic press and the syringe. He was born in France in 1623. He showed a gift for math early: At age 12, he started rediscovering Euclid’s theorems on his own. Later, spurred by a friend who liked gambling, he developed the theory of probabilities. After a life-threatening accident in 1654 he had a religious conversion, which led him to write about religious ethics and belief. He died in 1662.
