Painting: A Spiritual Pathway to the Divine


In a world increasingly driven by technology and fast-paced living, the art of painting provides an oasis of calm and introspection. It allows both the artist and the observer to delve deep into a realm often considered transcendental. For many, painting serves as a bridge to the divine, a medium through which spirituality is explored and celebrated.

The Act of Creation

Painting, at its core, is an act of creation. Artists take inspiration from the world around them or from within, translating complex emotions, thoughts, or visions onto canvas. This creative process mirrors the fundamental act of divine creation, a topic that has been explored in religious texts and philosophies worldwide. Through this art form, many artists feel a connection to a higher power, as they essentially ‘play God’ on a microcosmic scale.

Visual Meditations

The colors, strokes, and forms that come alive on the canvas can evoke a range of emotions in the viewer, similar to religious icons or scripture. For some, looking at a painting can be a form of meditation Self-realization and meditation (yoga for the mind) - Peter Cajander allowed us to publish this part from his book Fragments of Reality.

Waffle Cooking is an Art

waffle cookingThere is considerable debate surrounding the origins of waffle cooking. The Dutch argue that they invented waffles, with the modern classic Dutch stroopwafels (syrup waffles) originating in Gouda during the 18th century. However, chiffon waffles, made from separated eggs, were already known in the Netherlands in the 16th century. The Belgians also claim that waffles are a Belgian invention, and the classic Belgian waffle, leavened with yeast, does have a long history.

The earliest mention of waffles that we have, however, comes from an English recipe for waffles in a 14th-century cookbook. Nowadays, British waffles are typically savory potato cakes served as a side dish rather than for breakfast.

Today, when people think of waffles, they often imagine American waffles. The method of making these batter cakes arrived in the Americas in the 1620s with Dutch pilgrims. The initial versions were more like drop cakes cooked on a griddle. In fact, it wasn’t until 1789 when Thomas Jefferson brought a waffle iron back from France that the modern waffle was born. It took another century for waffles to gain widespread popularity in America, where they were served with both sweet and savory dishes.

Tools For Leather Crafting

Leather crafting has been around for thousands of years, and so have the tools used for it. There are various tools for different styles of leather crafting, such as sewing, stamping, or punching. It takes time, effort, and careful precision to create a well-crafted leather product, but with the right tools, leather crafting can be both enjoyable and rewarding.

One type of leather crafting is leather carving, which involves creating a three-dimensional effect on a leather surface. Tools required for this craft include mallets, stamps, bevellers, and swivel knives. This process can be time-consuming but is usually well worth the effort. First, the leather must be soaked in water for a certain amount of time before it is cased. The craftsman then uses a swivel knife to cut into the leather halfway while holding it vertically. Next, a beveller is used to create an indentation on one side of the leather, forming a vertical edge on parts of the image. The beveller is used while a mallet lightly strikes it. The final touches are dress cuts, made with a swivel knife.

The use of these tools varies depending on the desired effect. Bevellers can have different shapes, such …
