ST. TERESA'S CHURCH, SUMMIT, NJ

This Roman Catholic church is more than 100 years old. Its construction is stone, with three marble altars. Though the original candle offerings have been electrified many years now, the original statuary and altars remain. The stained glass windows are huge, and absolutely spectacular with the sun shining through them.

The church has been restored several times over the years.

At one point a mural was painted on the ceiling over the main altar. The latest renovation two years ago modernized the interior to some degree and the mural was removed. I miss it.

Some day I'd like to paint a series of images of all of the houses of worship in my area. I think the diversity of styles would make an interesting exhibit. I have many photo references and a few sketches already, so you could call this a work in progress, even though I have yet to put brush to paper!
