Column in Priene Framed Print
Spirits are sleeping, but they dream of now. ©TriciVenola 2012 Two hours in scorching heat, drawing this column from the Temple of Athena Polias, dedicated in 334 by Alexander the Great in Priene, a city high on a hill over a grassland that once was the harbor. Realized with horror that I’d left out one of the two small sections at the top. It drove me crazy. A friend said, “Trici, nobody in this life will ever notice that,” but-Damn! So I went in digitally and fixed it.

My back was literally against the wall, and I was scrunched down almost to the floor, for three days, to get this drawing.
