Luke the Artist

It’s St Luke’s Day. He’s the patron saint of artists because he is supposed to have done portraits of the Madonna. The famous icon in Poland Our Lady of Czestochowa (image 0016) is supposed to be by him.

So not a bad day to link over to The Cafeteria is Closed for some great pictures of beautiful tapestries at the much derided new cathedral in LA.
