Saturday, October 16, was the day the patron of this blog, Lucas Cranach, the artist of the Reformation, died in 1553, at the age of 81. (His formal day of commemoration is April 6, set aside to honor him along with other Reformation-era artists, Albrecht Durer and Michelangelo.) Read about him and contemplate his self-portrait in the sidebar to the right. He embodies what we keep talking about when it comes to vocation. How should his day be celebrated?
Happy belated Cranach day!
