I don’t know. Maybe it was the arches. Or the shadows cast by the late afternoon sun. Perhaps it was the geometry of it all that fascinated me. I’m not an artist, by any stretch. Especially not a graphic artist. But as I stood there, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the mathematical trickery of MC Escher’s Ascending and Descending.
Or the visual impossibly of his never ending Waterfall.
I returned the next day with easel, a canvas, and charcoal and I sketched what I saw.
Not too shabby, I thought, for someone who’s not an artist, not even a graphic artist, and certainly not an MC Escher.
