Inventors


... is this week´s theme for the Gothic Arches challenge. My postcard sized arch is about Benjamin Franklin who invented the lightning arrestor in 1752 but has also been a statesman and is famous for some fantastic quotes like the one I´ve used here. Enough work for three lives - what a genius he must have been.

Wonderful depiction and composition of Ben Marion! I appreciate how hard it is sometimes to work with historical figures and you've done a great job.
