God's Security Guard

A profound faith in God will make a man do many things - quit drinking, settle down with a good woman, or paint his camper all crazy.

This sort of divinely inspired art is a genre unto itself. Back in the old days, like during the Renaissance and before, the top artists of the western world created religious art almost exclusively. Now it's left to the self-taught.

Jesus was a carpenter, not an artist, so it's no surprise that His work is lacking in draftsmanship and rendering technique.

Rob, our west coast correspondent, found this in Los Angeles so there has to be a connection to show biz. That's one thing unique to L.A., everyone is assessed by their proximity to celebrity.
