Sister Batrill


The Duomo in Milan is newly restored after many years of renovation. The first moment I saw it I thought it looked fake. It was so clean, as if it was built yesterday. I think you can see it in my drawing too. It's so old looking that you wonder where all the wear and tear has gone. Don't get me wrong, it's stunning to see. When you travel to Rome, you see nuns, priests and monks everywhere. Obviously Vatican City is there. In Milan and Bologna there are churches all over the place. You never see a nun or a priest anywhere. How is that possible. Maybe all the churches have become museums. There are churches there that look strange because they ran out of money halfway through building them. Half the church is beautiful marble with elaborate carvings. Then all of a sudden, the top half is all made of bricks. No wonder all the priests and nuns fled. The pay was better in Rome

I've been admiring your work for a long while. Love your stuff. Everything you post is interesting both here and on Flickr. Like your baseball drawings--but don't know how you can draw while at a ballgame.
