Treasure Found

Yesterday I went to pick up a few items I had won (an old sap bucket, and metal wall shelf) as my daughter had entered my name in a drawing months ago when she purchased a beautiful candle holder for me for Mother's Day at a renovated antique mall that was once an old train station. I had to be at an appointment, and only had a couple minutes to browse as the owner was waiting on other customers, when my eyes landed on this treasure...a framed print of Da Vinci's 'Il Rendentore', which was wonderfully textured with a hint of gouache, and a slashed sale price of only $9!! What an inspiration piece she is, which now hangs next to the bathroom mirror reflecting "the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which is in the sight of God, of great price." (1 Peter 3:4)
