I was able to get a good start on this new drawing of Father Price. Unfortunately Fr Price was very resistant to being photographed and did not want attention drawn to himself, so I was amazed when I found this image of him praying the divine office on a country road. This captures so much of his spirit. Very excited about this one.
In his biographies, whenever his love for the Old North State is referenced, it is always by recalling the serene pine forests of our home. And of course, for his home of Wilmington, a second home to me from my younger years, is almost completely dominated by these tall and whispering sentinels. It is fitting therefore that pines oversee the Tarheel Apostle’s prayers in this portrait.
