Homeless Ministry Efforts By Eric Painter Impacts Texas Communities

Eric Painter’s homeless ministry efforts impact at-risk youth through mentorship and material support

SUGAR LAND, TX, UNITED STATES, July 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Through his volunteer efforts since 2013, Eric Painter of Texas has worked with the Houston Homeless Ministry to provide mentorship, food, and needed items to the homeless and at-risk youth population of the area. There is a lasting direct and indirect impact of investing time and resources into a very vulnerable group of people.

There are many needs of the Houston area homeless population. As a part of his work with the Houston Homeless Ministry, Eric Painter observes people needing more than just a place to live. Many individuals need food, clothing, medical attention, mental health support, and even spiritual guidance.

The first step in any ministry is to provide for the basic necessities of life. After that, Eric Painter of Texas continues his efforts and outreach to the homeless population by visiting and mentoring people. His guidance and attention help individuals to begin to build a life beyond homelessness.

Overall, Eric Painter invests his time and energy into the people he serves. Each individual is still a person who is struggling in life. They deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, no matter their current circumstances in life. The true gift of service is going beyond meeting just the immediate needs of a homeless individual, it’s in building relationships.

Eric Painter of Texas was born in 1991 in Cleveland, Ohio, to a loving mother and father. He has two younger brothers and a large extended family who remain close to this day. He grew up very close with all of his cousins and has great memories of all the time they'd spend together at the lake house.

After high school, Eric Painter of Sugar Land went to study Theology and earned his Bachelor's degree at the Franciscan University of Steubenville. While there, he was able to study in Europe for half a year and spent time in 15 different countries. After college, Eric spent time working and teaching for a non-profit for six years before moving into his current career in tech/software sales. In his current role, Eric Painter of Texas helps HR professionals streamline and digitize their processes by providing modern software that allows HR to focus on their people rather than paperwork. He hopes to continue to grow his career in the SaaS industry as he is passionate about leveraging good technology to simplify processes. Aside from his career, Eric Painter of Texas is passionate about music, baseball, coffee, and traveling.

Barebrush presents the July art calendar with 31 artworks representing Art of the Day. Founder Ilene Skeen resumes the "Talking Art Videos" with a new schedule

I try to capture human energies.”

— Jon Rettich

SARASOTA / BRADENTON, FL, UNITED STATES, July 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Barebrush July calendar begins with an intriguing color pencil figure study. Jilly Seated is by Jon Rettich, Barebrush Featured Artist in NYC. The artist writes,

I try to capture human energies. I appreciate the challenge of a convoluted pose. Jilly managed a sense of absorbed solitude while the studio's soft and not so soft sounds surrounded her apparent reverie.

— Created at Minerva's Drawing Studio, NYC

The Barebrush Art of the Day calendar
Each Barebrush calendar features contemporary artworks in various media. These include photos, oils, watercolor, mixed media, and sculpture. You see the beauty of art created by artists working today, revealed day by day. You see the tantalizing art of the nude. You get the words of the artists. Other art calendars use one image per month or week. Barebrush showcases unique artwork for each day of the month. The art of the day is yours to see, enjoy and treasure. On the Art-of-the-Day calendar page, you can see the current calendar art revealed over time.

The "Talking Art" Method
Barebrush founder, Ilene Skeen, starts with a three-step plan: look at the art, listen to the artist, find the point. She creates the narrative and close-ups. She adds lines, arrows, and other art tools for clarity. Ilene shares what the artist says about the work. Then she sums up the point of the art. In the nine months of Art of the Day for Barebrush, Sept. 2020 through May 2021, Ilene produced 274 videos.

"Talking Art" videos are fast and fun, averaging under 3 minutes.

In July, Ilene takes this method to the next level — to famous art that you know, but never thought to know well. She asks, What do you see? What did the artist say? Why is this art special?

"Talking Art" July Video Schedule (10 videos)
July 1 – 7: How to Look at Art – Barebrush Art of July slide shows with music.
July 15: Talking Famous Art: The Face of Mary (Michelangelo's Pieta).
July 22: Talking Famous Art: The Face of Fear (Edvard Munch's "The Scream").
July 29: Talking Art on Location: To be Announced.

Barebrush is the premiere ad-free, non-porn, fine art website. Online since 2006, proving it's OKAY+ to enjoy the art of the nude.

We realize that space in a creator’s bag is very valuable. We intend to have our gear earn its rightful place and always be within reaching distance for every type of creative challenge or opportunity”

— Andy Liu, son of Benro founder Hao “Leo” Liu

WHITE PLAINS, NY, USA, July 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Benro, a global leader in the photo and video space has been busy planning for future success.

The MeFOTO, MeVIDEO and INDURO brands have been manufactured at Benro’s facility and have now merged their product design and innovation resources, becoming available as “Super” Collections under the Benro brand. Long favorites of traveling photographers and content creators who appreciated their range of features and thoughtful design aesthetic, the move consolidates and unifies the MeFOTO, MeVIDEO, INDURO and Benro design and innovation teams in order to share best practices and resources within the state-of-the-art Benro manufacturing facilities.

Benro has long been committed to providing support to a global community of creators in the photography and filmmaking spaces as well as the ever-expanding universe of content creators who need support systems to tell their unique and diverse stories. The range of technology available today makes it simpler than ever for a creative individual at any experience level to pick up a device and begin sharing their vision. This also represents a growth opportunity as creators look to add tools that enable them to maximize what’s possible.

“We are in an age of 24/7/24 image storytelling and story-sharing. This means that a creator can literally pick up their favorite device at any hour and with the right accessories, begin capturing content. These creators will be needing not just traditional support accessories like tripods and heads but also lights and modifiers and a wide range of flexible connection devices to hold peripherals like audio recording gear and additional smart devices or wireless transmitters. Benro will have all this and more coming very shortly with the goal of providing a complete content creation ecosystem allowing for infinite flexibility and incredible value.” – Jan Lederman, MAC Group President

New Launch Featuring Waterproof Liners, Zipper Covers & Trendy Colors Now Available for Purchase

FORT WAYNE, IN, UNITED STATES, July 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Following an incredibly successful soft launch in April which resulted in all inventory being sold out, The Flip announced today the launch of its stylish new indoor and outdoor modular couches designed to be as durable and easy-to-clean as they are to play on.

Arguably one of the must-have children’s products of 2021, The Flip is an infinitely configurable play couch made up of four foam pieces that enables the base, cushion and two triangle pillows to be flipped in, out, up, down, over or under, making it the ideal solution for imaginative play or relaxation time. Made in the USA with machine-washable covers and the most durable foam on the market, The Flip is verified and approved by moms for other moms and all products from fabric to foam have been tested and certified through an accredited Consumer Product Safety Commission Testing Lab.

“What sets us apart from other kid’s couches on the market is that our product is made in America, so it is ready to ship as soon as possible, without having to wait to get more inventory in from overseas. This is huge as we’re able to meet the demand quickly and effectively” said Jordan Rudicel, father of two young girls and Plant Manager of The Flip. “We also designed the two smaller pieces uniquely for your littles. They can be turned on their sides to act as a triangle, or they can sit upright and become a balance beam, step stool, mountain top or tea party table. The possibilities for fun with The Flip are limitless.”

Now available for purchase, The Flip ($299) offers eight different color options that range from more vibrant and trendy pallets like Blue Skies Ahead and Minty Fresh to traditional neutrals like Sandy Beach and In The Clouds.

TY the Tasmanian Tiger’s award-winning sequel launches on PlayStation 4 systems.

TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue HD out now for PlayStation systems

TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue HD out now for PlayStation systems

Krome Studios Launches Classic Platformer TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue HD

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, July 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — TY the Tasmanian Tiger is back for seconds with the highly anticipated return of TY the Tasmanian Tiger™ 2: Bush Rescue™ HD on PlayStation®4 systems.

Practically bursting at the polygons with character, charm and wit, this light-hearted romp around the Australian Outback will have you meeting a diverse cast of critters from intellectual Koalas to a wise-cracking Cockatoo down to a jailbreaking Cassowary who goes by the name of “Boss Cass”.

The game has the player taking the fight to Cass directly with the newly established Bush Rescue. TY and his friends are needed to protect the colorful townsfolk across Southern Rivers from the looming threat presented by Cass and his frilled-neck goons!

“This all-ages game was such a treat on the PlayStation 2 back in 2004,” reveals Krome Studios CEO, Robert Walsh, “Character platformers are still popular with kids of all ages today.”

Featuring a wide assortment of iconic boomerangs, some new and others returning… (See what we did there?) TY the Tasmanian Tiger, sports a signature boomerang move set consisting of glides, swinging and combat thwacks to help overcome most Bush Rescue missions in the game.

When a rang is not going to cut the mustard, TY has access to a wide variety of vehicles and mechanized suits known as “Bunyips”. Adventure awaits! Hop in the back of Shazza’s trusted 4×4 “Fourbie” to skid into the action, traversing across a lush and interconnected world.

“The adventure continues and expands for all the TY fans that have been anxiously waiting for this next installment of the series.”, voices Steve Stamatiadis, Creative Director at Krome.

After successfully relaunching the first game of the series, the developers at Australian based Krome Studios have made it their mission to offer the same level of care to this remaster of the classic collect-a-thon platforming sequel. Returning fans are sure to get a kick out of this!

A heightened visual treatment along with many quality-of-life improvements have been made throughout the adventure, likely to surprise and delight original fans while also appealing to a new audience. All the while maintaining that classic retro aesthetic that stays true to the original.

Collect, Complete, Compete. With the help of TY’s fans, Krome added new unlockable skins for both TY and the Fourbie! Video game completionists or speedrunners can take advantage of the newly added Leaderboards to record their high scores. Measure your progress against your friends with trophies on your quest for the new Platinum trophy.
