Ben H. Long, IV, a North Carolina native and world famous fresco artist, has created a trail of fresco paintings in churches throughout the NC mountains. A fresco is a paining created while the plaster in the wall is still wet, making the artwork a permanent part of the building.
This piece, “Suffer The Little Children” is located in Crossnore, NC at the Crossnore School in the EH Sloop Chapel. Churches are one of my favorite subjects and this one did not disappoint. A beautiful day and a beautiful church held this very beautiful fresco. Enjoy.
