My web site
has a selection of my paintings. Come by and look through them and let me know what you think.

I believe the arts and artists are a vital part of life. One of my favorite quotes on this is by
L. Ron Hubbard, who wrote: “The artist has an enormous role in the enhancement of today’s and the creation of tomorrow’s reality. He operates in a rank in advance of science as to the necessities and requirements of man. The elevation of a culture can be measured directly by the numbers of its people working in the field of aesthetics.”

The Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre in Los Angeles is dedicated to helping artists. I encourage any artist to find out more about Scientology -- there is so much in it that is helpful, not only in the area of freeing up your creativity, which it certainly does, but in providing tools to survive as an artist too.

Here's another beautiful image from Robert Castagna's blog.

On the website of his Boston Scientology Volunteer Ministry it has the following notice about these photos: ART FOR THE CAUSE: The Scientology Ministry is paid for by donations. It provides its services free of charge. As part of the fundraising efforts to sponsor the ministry's various outreach and in-house programs, fine-art prints by photographer Robert Castagna are currently available. All proceeds from the sales go directly to the ministry and its programs. To view prints available see the following links:

The Kyoto Collection or The Italy Collection

Boston Fundraiser

I found this great story on the Creative Expressions blog.

This beautiful photograph is one of a series that is part of a fundraiser for the Boston Scientology Volunteer Ministry

Rev. Robert Castagna is not only responsible for the beautiful images, he is also the director of the Ministry.

The Church of Scientology of Boston services the community in many ways. This is part of a major expansion for the Scientology religion that includes the establishment of new churches such which have recently held grand openings, such as the Church of Scientology of New York, the Church of Scientology of Buffalo, the Church of Scientology of San Francisco, the Church of Scientology of Spain and the Church of Scientology of Johannesburg, South Africa (Mr. David Miscavige -- Chairman of the Board of Religious Technology Center attended and was a featured speaker at each of these grand openings).

These churches represent a new era for the Scientology religion.
