1989, collection Fred Fowler.
This painting is
from a photograph that Fred took, of one of the many gargoyles from St. Paul's cathedral

upon us from high above. There are numerous mythological "faces" to be seen upon
public buildings here in Pittsburgh, a provincial, but pretty town, that almost reminds
one of the old capitals of Europe.
