I have wanted to get a nice picture of the temple up in our family room for quite some time. I have little pictures elsewhere in the house, but a good size picture I had postponed buying for a two reasons:
1. I wanted something a little different than the standard photo or the current trend of purposefully aged pictures (although they are beautiful).
2. Large prints or pictures were a bit more costly than I wanted to pay.
But last week I was reading this blog and found a beautiful artistic rendition of the Mesa temple for sale. The picture was painted by Thomas Manning and is called Mesa AZ Temple by Moonlight. I love the blue sky (blue is my fave color) and the artist's style. And since the price was very affordable I ordered one. It came first thing this week so I found a frame yesterday and hung it up today. Even better is that the proceeds for buying the print go to help the artist's mother with her health condition.
Here is a better view of the picture:
I also have a wall plaque to make to go underneath it that reads "Temple: I am going there someday" (which has been on my laundry room counter unfinished for about two years). I think I will match the blue in the picture as the background for the plaque. What do you think?
Total project cost: $40
Total project time: maybe an hour
