St Andrew's church

The church down the street is 101 this year.  I think the cedar-shingled wooden structure is starting to show its age, but I love that its walls are full of woodpecker nest holes.  Pretty much all the dead trees have been cut down in the neighbourhood, so that's about the only place they have left to nest.  The front of the roof peak is also apparently prime real estate, as two pigeons were fighting for the spot the whole time I was drawing.  The church is actually stained a much more somber brown colour, but I like my natural-wood version better.  Maybe next time I paint it, I'll make it purple.
