After the death of Simon, the next scene is a dramatic one on the Broadway stage next door. The parallel between the drama of theater and Simon’s death generates a sad, dark tone. The dark lighting of the theater and the outside world is another production technique that makes this scene have more impact. It is a highly emotional sequence, and only gains more emotional momentum when CJ is told of Simon’s death. The actors’ voices are barely audible, but this adds to the privacy of the details.
Matthew has his head down which could symbolize submission. The type of medium that Caravaggio uses is in the visual category, a painting to be more specific. The medium that Caravaggio chose does suite what he is trying to convey. With a painting, Caravaggio is able to use light, texture and color to show the divinity in the light. He is able to capture expression and emotion in the characters as well as their dimensions.
Once inside he immediately asked me to help him make sense of the presence of evil in the world and even if there really is a God in existence. This question really struck me by surprise because of my previous connotations that he was a Christian. I had to mentally take a step back and first explain to Sam that unfortunately the presence of evil in the world does exist. I asked him if he believes in right and wrong or even if he thought there were good people and bad (evil) people. Sam answered with a yes to both of the questions that I asked.
When comparing Supper at Emmaus (1648) to its 1629 counterpart, the drastic change in technique is quite evident. Rembrandt dropped the theatrical quality in his use of layout and lighting; depicting Christ head on, under normal lighting. Christ is placed in the center beneath an arch, giving the painting a symmetrical layout. As Rembrandt became more dejected in life, he worked harder at striving to depict biblical scenes that were pure and of the utmost holiness. His painting Night Watch is noted for its excellent use of chiaroscuro.
I. was a painter and this new eyesight would change his world forever. We live in a color oriented world so how does colorblindness affect people? “There’s no treatment but most people adjust and the condition doesn’t limit their activities.”(Medline Plus) Does being a painter mean that color vision is required? Mr. I. painted beautifully when he had his color vision, but when he lost it his work only became better.
The author’s experience in painting a Lily is difficult. He doesn’t firsthandedly try to physically “paint” the Lily, he’s painting a picture of the Lily.

24-25 (Frames 1-10), Scott McCloud uses the painting of a pipe to explain that what you see in a picture is not actually what you see. As a human, when you first examine the picture you see a painting of a pipe, but, in reality, it actually is not a painting of a pipe. It is copies of a drawing that was made from the original painting. On Pg. 31 (Frames 7&8), he tells how a circle, two dots, and a line are perceived as a face and how our mental stigma forces us to always see that combination of strokes as a face.
In “We Wear the Mask,” Paul Laurence Dunbar writes about the “mask” that human beings wear in front of other human beings to disguise any pain, sadness, or turmoil that they may be going through at the time. Dunbar states that humans often are not honest with those around them about their feelings because it is easier to make them believe everything is okay, and how true he is! He also states in the third stanza that we call on God when no one else is looking and we are in pain, but we would rather let the world see us smile. We would rather wear the mask. The form Dunbar uses to write this poem is iambic tetrameter.
“Yet Do I Marvel” by Countee Cullen Throughout the poem “Yet Do I Marvel” by Countee Cullen, he illustrates thoughts of what the common man may wonder about God. It starts out with “I doubt not God is good, well-meaning, kind,” which leads us to think that the narrator’s belief in God is concrete and cannot be questioned. As the poem goes on, though, our narrator wonders many things, especially why there is so much bad in the world if there is a God. He understands there must be a reason for all of the bad, but humans simply are too worldly to understand why. We are shown this in line two, which reads “And did He stoop to quibble why,” telling us that if God were to come down to a human level, he could tell us.
There are many ways we can walk in his way such as keeping the ten commandments and really trying your hardest to be the least sinful you can be. With that being said a lot of people tend to think just because we have a merciful God they can stab,shoot, and kill but that’s not how he wants us to be. There are similar things to what is talked about in this book such as someone thinking
