Cheese!?! Where’s the cheese? We’re always hungry!
Model poses and the finished paintings of Gil Elvgren
Its not just a model, it’s his wife. She posed for every single one of his paintings.
What my brain did immediately…
“Oh, so they’ve ALWAYS photoshopped pin-ups, it’s always been fakery!” Comparing the size and shape of the lovely lady on the left with the paintings on the right.
And then I read about it being his wife, and I had another twist on it. Maybe the paintings are how he sees her, because he loves the heck out of this woman and his perception is of her beauty.
It is NOT his wife. Some misinformed person added that to my post and it’s completely untrue.
A graphical representation of the contradictions in the bible. Each red line links 2 contradicting statements.
WILL ALWAYS REBLOG.
This reminds me of a really fascinating theological idea I read once. It poses that God meant for the Bible to be full of contradictions, because it isn’t an instruction manual, but a test of character. If you can read through all the books and stories, all the confusing, contradictory statements, and you still choose to take home a message of peace, acceptance, and forgiveness, then you’ve passed God’s test.
I’m not a very religious person, but I still really like that idea.
^ I like that interpretation :D
