Today I cleaned up our good brotherly monks and sprayed on the varnish to protect the paint. The weather was rather frigid, so please excuse my numerous and baggy layers of sweatshirts.
Here's the view of the courtyard coming down from the steps. One man told me he watched the Wizard of Oz the previous night and when he saw this afterwards thought it was the Yellow Brick Road -- which is decidedly this piece's title. Thanks to all the guys and Linda who dropped by when I was painting to keep me company, share conversation, and throw in a couple jokes. It always means a lot, and I don't forget it! You made the process a lot of fun. Keep warm and enjoy the Holidays!
