Guardian Kestrel Complete



I've spent the last few months off and on, tackling the underside of that dreaded arch. It was challenging for me to stay focused but I feel like I've learned from it. I kept thinking of the original sculptors who poured their hearts and souls into this building and that made it easier for me to keep going. I'd like to continue using architecture in future painting's.

I found particulary appealing the combination of these delicate ornaments and the presense of the Kestrel..It is an exceptional painting! Thank you also for sharing the process with all of us John!
