Clifton Springs' Tiffany Treasure

In the village of Clifton Springs (where I grew up), there is a hospital--and it has been around for a long time. In its heyday it was the "Spa"--movie stars went there to dry out. There is a sulfur brook that runs through the town. That is why the hospital was built there--sulfur was thought to have healing properties. The Seneca of the Iroquois Nation knew this too. The original hospital is now the "spa apartments" A new hospital was built in 1975. The point of this blog is that there is a chapel in the spa apartments with a mosaic. I have been asked to do a "Last Supper" painting. My dad suggested that I use the Tiffany mosaic as my inspiration. I took some pictures today and I thought I would share them, as they are splendid-considering the low shutter speed, and the tremor I have. There was some work going on in the chapel so we had access to a ladder to get a better angle on the shots. We could not find the light switch- we would have turned them off for better photos!
