ANGER AND THE ARTIST
When Leonardo DeVinci was working on his painting “The Last Supper,” he became angry with a co-worker. Losing his temper he lashed out at the other fellow with bitter words and threats. Returning to his canvas he attempted to work on the face of Jesus, but was unable to do so. He was so upset he could not compose himself for the painstaking work. Finally he put down his tools and sought out the co-worker and asked his forgiveness. The man accepted his apology. Then Leonardo was able to return to his workshop and finish painting the face of Jesus.
