Tuesday’s Treasures…

Pictures51

This is a treasured work of art we have that a friend painted. Here is a link to her website. The work was inspired by a small nook in the crypt of the National Cathedral in Washington D.C.

This is a collage of the actual nook on the left and our painting on the right. We owned this painting before we visited the Cathedral and it was like a treasure hunt for us to find the nook.

If you ever find yourself in Washington D.C., the National Cathedral is a must see. It’s on one of the hop on hop off trolley lines.

I’m linking up with Tom the Backroads Traveler for Tuesday’s Treasures.

We are having a Spring heat wave here in the Seattle area. We are breaking heat records for April with highs in the 80’s! We barbecued tonight and we’ve had to do a lot of watering that we don’t usually do in April. Thinking of those of you who live in the Houston area and I do hope you are above water.

  1. The painting is really special and I love that it is not a perfect reflection as a photograph would be. It’s almost as if the artist looked and remembered the scene without being there or using a photograph.

  2. Beautiful painting! Thanks for sharing the history behind it. You’re the second person from Tuesday’s Treasures this week who has made me start thinking about planning a trip tourist trip to DC. (We’re having above normal temperatures where I am in the Northeast, also. By the end of the week, they’re dropping back to normal for us, I think.)
