Within a few blocks of the H. H. Richardson Historic District is Unity Church, built by the Ames family in 1875, and designed in the Gothic Revival Style by architect and publisher John Ames Mitchell. It includes an ornate oak frieze including sculptures of twenty-two angels playing music, carved by Johannes Kirchmayer (1860–1930), and two notable stained-glass windows, “Angel of Help,” and “Figure of Wisdom,” both by John LaFarge (1835–1910). “Figure of Wisdom,” completed in 1901, is the largest stained-glass work created by Lafarge. Partial vignette view of the chapel at Unity Church done with Faber=Castell Pitt pens and Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
Not sure why your updates haven’t been appearing in my reader. Your work is lovely, as always. Have a great week!

Thank you Laura. I have not been consistent in posting. The sketches are completed but I have been scanning when I have time. I am trying to get better.
