Tattooed Town Hall

OK- here is the beginning of a new body of work I am developing. I am, as some of you may have seen in the recent past, very attracted to old buildings- churches, meeting houses, barns, etc. This is an old town hall in Deer Isle, Maine. I have begun "tattooing" my paintings with henna like patterns. The surfaces of these beautiful white clapboard buildings is crying out to be decorated- beautiful graffiti, of a sort. Let me know what you think. I am working on a much larger piece as well, and will be posting it's development in stages.
