George’s Postcard Note: How to draw such a monument of western civilization? How to draw without thinking of all those people who have gone before me? I just decided to do a quick simple sketch and try to not think of all the history. Its weight and monumentality grabbed me so I tried to show that on the postcard. Several people stopped to check out the painting, then moved on. Two older Japanese women approached me shyly. I nodded. One came over and asked if they could look at the drawing. I said, ” of course”! She brought her friend over and explained the work to her in Japanese. She then thanked me in English, clasped her hands, bowed and moved on. What a sweet moment.
