“Become so wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid.”
– Lady Bird Johnson
Church in Salina, KS – 8″ x 10″ Ink
This is the painting I’m working on now. Many, many times, while working on this, I found myself saying out loud… “What was I thinking?” Can you imagine how smart the architects had to be to design this building? I’m trying to decide whether to add the bricks…. in some fashion or another. It would really add to the painting, but it would make me go insane! Hmmmmm…. what to do. Maybe I should read Lady Bird Johnson’s quote again.
I am painting this from a photo by Suzanne Wallick at Paint My Photo.
You can see the finished painting here.
