The Alamo

This painting is somewhat different for me...and I was pretty happy with it all in all.  When I was in SanAntonio several years ago, I went by The Alamo...our beloved Texas shrine.  For you who have not ever seen the old treasure in real'd be very surprised at the exquisite carving and relief work done in the front door area.  The columns and windows and niches are just beautiful.  I thought I'd keep a pretty simple limited palette as there are no shrubs or flowers there...just the grand old building.  This is half sheet...and I'll crop it when I decide whether or not to continue the columns lower in the bottom area...going to live with it for a few days and then decide.
