The inking almost done on Bok Tower

Bok Tower

Bok Tower

The hardest part is finished.  This has been a difficult one for many reasons. Firstly, the foliage is quite varied with the pines and hanging Spanish moss  intermixed with palm trees.  Then there are three different kinds of Florida stone used in this art deco, neo-gothic tower.  There is a flat faced coquina stone (which is done) inset between pink marble corners and set above a gray marble base.  There are so many details with the carved screens, friezes, and sundial that the whole thing is way more than you might think of at first glance.  Still, it is progressing well and all I have left are the marble blocks and the walkway.  If not for the Super Bowl and my annual turkey feast, it would probably be finished today.  LOL  Still, I have been glad to let it sit a bit more than usual because of the extra details involved.
