Another house in spite of a headache
I have had an incredible sinus headache for two days now. I've done numerous hot showers, baths, heat packs, ice packs, numberous doses of Excedrin sinus, a dose of Oxycodone, a massage, and it still isn't completely gone! My face is even swollen. I have had very short times where the intesity will let up a little bit and I can be partially functional, but it doesn't last long. In those short times, I have very slowly created this next addition to the skyline/skyscraper swap. This one is a church and the roofline is taken from a photograph of the entrance to The Fransican Renewal Center here in Phoenix. On the right is a transfer of an angel. The stucco of the church was made by first coating the piece with light molding paste. Then, a base coat of color, a coat of crackle medium, a second coat of paint color and then hitting it in spots with a brown glaze to further age the stucco. I drew the vines and flowers on with pitt pens as well as the detail work of the stairs and hand rail. I added the word "Blessed" on the left side and did a little doodle around it to resemble wrought iron work similar to the hand rail. So far, I think this is my favorite. I really like how it turned out. I titled this "One Blessed Place".
