St. Luke’s finished

St. Luke's Episcopal Church

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church

After a lot of peering closely at photos, I finally finished the inking for St. Luke’s Episcopal in Atlanta.  There was a lot of detail in this relatively small drawing, but I think it turned out well. The large stained glass window is a wonderful focal point.  I cut back the ivy on the fence to give a glimpse of the entryway, but I wanted to keep the little bit of character that it gave to the wrought iron fence.

This is the fourth ink drawing I have done for this particular client and my curiosity finally got the better of me.  I suspected that they all might be wedding gifts portraying the ceremony site, but I had to ask.  And I was right.  She said that when she gave the first one to the bride, she cried.  I am so touched that I am able to help her give a unique memento of a very special occasion.

    This is a very pretty and, of course, thoughtful gift, no wonder it was received so emotionally. Well done – not only beautiful artwork, but also a good opportunity to once again hear that you are a brilliant artist. K.

      thanks, Carol. I think it is a unique gift too. It seems like many couples now have much of what they need before the wedding, so this is something really special. I think she has gotten good responses to them as gifts.

    Wow! Perfection. Somehow, that lamp post is the finishing touch. Without it, it just would not be as magnificent. Very, very awesome, Ruth!

      Thanks, Leslie. I found both of the commissions to be very detailed and somewhat time consuming. I bet I took as much time on these black and whites as I would do with a full color one. Not complaining really, just grateful that this client likes my work enough to make the gifts. Honored too.
