Happy Easter

Happy Easter! Here's a drawing that I did about 30 years ago of the Church of the Messiah in Rhinebeck, NY. 

I drew it with pen and ink on scratchboard. The style is an homage to Franklin Booth (1874-1948), whose work was in turn inspired by the look of wood engraving.

A Happy Easter to you, Jeanette and the rest of the family. It's great to see your scratchboard work. You are a master of so many mediums! Have you worked much in scratchboard since then? I enjoyed dabbling in it years ago, and also enjoyed it as an easier way to get a wood engraving-like look. Have you tried wood engraving, speaking of that? (I'm guessing so :^))
