Thank you for stopping by and I hope you learned something new today. I appreciate your support. Below is a new favorite of mine as of today by Edvard Munch. (1902 – 1916: REBORN)
“After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.
