“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.
