A while back, my friend asked me to paint a watercolor of the San Diego temple for her husband as an anniversary present. I replied, "Heid, I love you, but I don't do temples. Or Christ. That's my rule. They're too special for me to screw up and have to throw them away, or worse, screw them up and not throw them away." She responded with puppy dog eyes (which are a lovely shade of blue) and I caved.
