    La ermita (the hermitage)

    As I promised/threatened in the notes with "San Polo," this is the 4th-century Visigoth hermitage of San Saturio (patron saint of Soria).

    What´s left to do is a tower and wall from the late 17th-century church built above it. We´ll see if I can get that to work.

    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Great palette again!

    Question - how come there is so much white space to the right beyond the seeming end of the painting? Have you an intention to paint there as well?

    Thanks D Akey!

    All will be revealed. Really, though, once I get the rest worked out, that white space will convert to sky. There´s not quite as much as appears right now. (At any rate, if there´s a lot of dead space I can always include a poem. )

    Ode to a Partially Empty Canvas

    O thou white potential,
    Make haste,
    reveal thy hermetagenous color,
    thine udder revelations,
    homogeneous and consequential.
    Got Milk?

    Or perhaps maybe a different poem. . .

    I´d probably choose "an udder" poem.

    Rolls my eyes........ you guys are nuts. Can't wait for the finished work, now you'll have to include a poem.
    Do we have to accept what life hands us? Or can we say no thank you and ask for a different flavor?
