Inspiration for a new rug

When we were in San Antonio on Saturday, after visiting Country Gatherings wool barn, we drove to Mission Concepción. There are five missions total, including the Alamo, along the San Antonio river. My favorite is Mission Concepción.

This time, when I was in the side chapel, I noticed above the doorway, a fantastic old painting from the 1700s created when the mission was built. Immediately I knew I had to rug hook it. So it will serve as an inspiration for one of my next rugs.

Here is a photo my husband took of the painting. I can't wait to see this design turn into a rug!
