I need to make a confession.  I've been stalling...terrified of working on my chapel painting because I am not an architect, and therefore, drawing straight lines is something I definitely suck at.  My building was making me nuts...getting the parameters correct, the roof dimensions, etc.  was not going well.

But today, I think I finally got that ah-ha moment after trying a few different ideas...re-sketching over top of my existing building three times before getting it the right size, shape and uniformity.  You can see all my not so great lines below on the first photo.

I'm pretty happy with the results now.  Here are two photos about three hours apart:

Getting started on where I left off last week...

My new lines.  Much happier with the chapel now...will possibly finish it up on Monday.

I also finished up my little "Cold Feet" painting.  I needed a light source and added one today, just a little to cast the shadows that already went down.

Thank you for plugging along with me!  Stop back in Monday for more in progress photos for this piece and "Green Peace" that I wrote about yesterday.
