“Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.”
– Phillips Brooks
Auntie Faye’s Building Portrait in Black & White – 8″ x 10″
I’m busy painting on this one and I should be showing it to you soon. The store owners always get to see it before you, so it all depends on when James and Linda see it. I imagine I’ll have it done Monday or so. They did approve the pencil drawing before I proceeded with ink. The sign in the painting just went up 2 days ago. It’s colorful and fun! Well, of course it is… It’s a Signs by Beth original.
About Phillips Brooks
Phillips Brooks, the American clergyman now mostly known for writing the words to the Christmas song, “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” was one of the most influential ministers of his time, with his sermons reprinted in major newspapers. He delivered the eulogy at Abraham Lincoln’s funeral. Born in Boston in 1835, he spent most of his life there as overseer of Harvard University, rector of Trinity Church, and bishop of Massachusetts. He died in 1893, and the day of his funeral was declared an official day of mourning.
