Sketching at St. Mary's Basilica

Vanessa and I sketched a bit of flying buttress action at the St. Mary’s Basilica in Covington. It is like visiting a European cathedral in Kentucky.

It was a gorgeous day to be out. It felt like September rather than the usual 90s in August. Here is a vine video:

Also, there is a wonderful Duveneck mural inside the cathedral; definitely worth a visit.

This sign was outside the cathedral. It made me laugh for some reason, high and quaveringly...

I expected it to say "spiritual surveillance..."


  1. Fabulous Christina. I love how you are not afraid to draw anything, even
    complex architecture. I think I would have probably chickened out. Well done. :)

  2. Thanks Larry! I love older architecture. It has so much detail and craftsmanship. There are a couple art deco buildings downtown I have my eye on.
