Travis Simpkins Paints Portrait for the House of the Temple. Supreme Council, 33°. Scottish Rite, SJ

Pillars of Charity. House of the Temple. Supreme Council, 33°. Scottish Rite, SJ. by Travis Simpkins

     I was recently commissioned by the Supreme Council, 33°, SJ to paint the latest portrait for the collection at the House of the Temple in Washington, DC.
     This oil portrait honors the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas A. Rossman, 33° and it will soon be placed in the Pillars of Charity hallway, near the tombs of Past Sovereign Grand Commanders Albert Pike and John Henry Cowles. It is both an honor and a pleasure to have been asked to work on this project for my friends in the Southern Jurisdiction. I look forward to visiting again and seeing the painting on display there in the near future.
