KAPADOKYA/CAPPADOCIA - Trici
Inside the Last Church ©2006 by Trici Venola. Goreme Valley, Kapadokya. Someone always lived in this cave church and prayed often. I saw the dents worn by his knees in the room above, lifetimes of prayer. There was only twenty minutes of light left, so I shot a photo, used the light to draw the doorway, shape and mood, and filled in those Iconoclastic fresco details later. This is one of two Kapadokya drawings where I've relied on photos. My camera would never register anything outside the caves-- I need my eyes for that.
