Discovery of a hidden gem

The USk flickr group weekly theme is “houses of worship”.  While I do have many sketches of churches, I thought I would also do a new one for the theme.  There are many more interesting church building in Seattle area, but this one was close to me.

This is St. Stephen the Martyr Roman Catholic Church.  It’s a very modern building.  Personally, I prefer something closer to Gothic.  This was done about 1600 so it was starting to show some reflected sunset in the Eastern sky.  It’s a sign of the season that it isn’t nearly dark at that hour.

And I made a discovery.  There is a brick Chartres labyrinth on the grounds.  While I do not attend there, I will use the labyrinth!
