Jerry,
you're right about the peaceful quality of the area. This is a church and monastery built on a hill overlooking Cinci and the Ohio river, now converted to office space. Lots of trees around, this is an area that was once lower mid class, now gentrified with some nice shops, etc.
Wayne, thanks, I debated whether the orange brick was too intense-too storybook.
thanks Gilberte!
Scott, while painting this onsite, the bdg mgr said he had seen numerous people painting the church complex, but that I was the first to try it from that position: the side. Most had looked at the front of the bdg. I like that: a dif view. Of course, it was the comp that grabbed me in the 1st place-isnt that always true??
