The Last Jedi was the Last Straw For Many Star Wars Fans

Monday, December 18th, 2017

*UNWARNING* (This article contains NO spoilers)

Since the release of the new Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, it has been met with intense fan dissatisfaction to the point, and I quote, “Terrible movie…..I’m done with Star wars….I’ve read over a 100 star wars books…I’m out”  Fans are feeling empty, the movie franchise has not made good on what people are looking for.

Back in 1982, while in the US Navy, each night I’d listen to the Empire Strikes Back on audio cassette, a dramatized recording which fed an intense desire to join Han and the crew to fly aboard the Millennium Falcon saving the universe.

Frustrated! No matter how much I wanted to step though the movie screen or melt into the pages of a Han Solo novel, it was impossible because it’s a fictional story, there is no Han Solo, light sabers are press camera light bulb handles and Ewoks are fuzzy costumed actors conceived in Lucas’s commericalized mind.

Two years later, while relaxing  on board my ship, the USS Alamo, I was taking a break and uncharacteristically read the Book of Revelation, a prophetic book found in the Bible. As I read these 1,900 year old verses, something so incredible, so unexpected, totally changed the course of my life…I discovered The Real Star Wars Story;

Enter the graphic novel by Jim Pinkoski titled The Star Lords Controversy. Pinkoski captures the essence of this story from the scriptures, with an easy to read compelling captions with colorful illustrations retelling the original good vs. evil story. Guaranteed to fill and satisfy your wants of true adventure. Because it’s a true story, it will not, it cannot disappoint.

To unveil a painting is an uncommon thing. When you consider the process of creating a painting, from concept to finished art, it can take months and sometimes years to get the final result the artist wants.

          (Elfred Lee’s The Invitation)

It’s been over 13 years since the museum unveiled Elfred Lee’s Noah’s Ark painting titled: “The Invitation to a crowd of well over one hundred in Syracuse, NY.  Many of whom took a print home to place on their walls.

On Saturday December 30th 2017 at 11am, another Elfred Lee original fine art piece will make it’s debut and you are invited. The unveiling will be conducted at the conclusion of a talk titled the same as the painting The Tree of Life” 

The painting is so colorful and the design  inspiring so that the few who have had a sneak peak glimpse were overwhelmed with positive emotion.

The location of the event will be at the Fulton SDA Church 45 West 4th St. South in Fulton, NY 13069. Here’s the DIRECTIONS    See you there!
