St. Leonard's Church in Lipnica

I did this watercolor as a birthday gift
for my sister-in-law.

We visited Poland together last fall
with our husbands.
They are brothers.

But we are more than sisters-in-law.
It was a blast....

St. Leonard's Church in Lipnica

This beautiful church is one of the oldest 
Gothic wooden churches in Poland.

The first story is made of logs and the interior
walls and ceilings have
scenes from the Bible
 colorfully rendered from the 15th to the 17th century.

We visited this
 church with our husband's Polish family.  
Their grandfather grew up in the town of Lipnica.

It was our second visit to Poland
and we found the country and it's people just as
enchanting this time as we did last time.
