The Art of Jonathan Edward Guthmann Jonathan Edward Guthmann is an Australian artist working in a variety of mediums. His preferred technique is intaglio printmaking, a traditional method that involves making incisions into a sheet of metal, often with the use of corrosive liquids that bite into the surface, leaving a network of incised lines. These lines are then used to hold ink and with the aid of a large press, the resulting image is transferred onto dampened paper. Jonathan also works with pigmented inks, charcoal, graphite, conte and oil paints, often mixing these mediums with a unique approach to create distinctive works. He also has an academic background in theology, an area of research he is very passionate about and which greatly influences his creative life.  Spice up your timeline by following us on Facebook ! posted by Margaret

They want to do the same thing, all the time. And they never fight. This is the perfect couple who is always happy. But that’s just a fantasy. Expecting this to be your relationship is unrealistic. Even if you have held this idea in your mind for years, maybe you’ve already suspected that something is wrong with this image. Life is full of changes and challenges. Somehow, many couples – young and old – fall into the trap that there’s a “perfect relationship” out there. The Downside of a Relationship Is Always Hidden Why does everyone believe this? People tend to set unrealistic expectations for what their partners should be like. These magical ideas start when they are little kids.
