Day 16/30: "Dreams on Dexter"

"Dreams on Dexter"
Oil on Panel

This morning I was able to go paint en plein air with a good friend of mine who is a fabulous watercolor artist.  We chose to venture downtown and paint the historic Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church where Dr. Martin Luther King was pastor from 1954-1960. There is a lot of excitement in downtown Montgomery right now!  Inauguration Day is Monday and the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March is coming up in March. Could this be the most amazing street in the country?  On one end the telegraph was sent that began the Civil War and on the other Jefferson Davis took the oath of office as the first president of the Confederacy on same steps that Dr. Martin Luther King addressed those who marched from Selma.

As a side note, it was really cold this morning.  My friend is a native New Yorker.  
She said it was cold.  If she said it was cold, it was cold. ;)
