Calligraphy at it's finest:

The letter Aleph symbolizes God Himself; ox, 1, and 1,000. See Psalm 119.

El Paso Pro Musica!
Youtube videos that will bless your soul.
That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth ; 
that our daughters may be as corner stones 
polished after the similitude of a palace . . . .
Psalm 144:12
I must paint this moving music - big. Soon, or I will simply die!

Why Zuill is so generous to share the wonder and glory of the music:

The Vision

Art not only saves lives, but sacramental expressions of faith 
foster healing, fellowship, clarity of church identity, and vision 
(pray for the team seeking His face!), individual joy and a means 
to rest in His presence while sharing His glory.

Ukrainian Egg Design Process & mini movie

dye (or white) is sealed under pure bee’s wax applied with a batik-like “kistka” that is heated near a candle flame. Try to keep the candle carbon out of the hopper because they 
clog easily. Once you get it going, though,  they seem to go on forever. Layer up as many colors as you desire. Then the egg is hollowed out by displacing the poked yolk with light 
syringed air pressure through one drilled hole at either end. The yoke shoots out around 
the needle.Then water is likewise swished around and blown out. Next, the wax is melted off and the egg is varnished. One needn't be an artist to collect & use patterns. Have fun!
