|Travis Simpkins Paints Portrait for the House of the Temple. Supreme Council, 33°, SJ. Scottish Rite|
I was once again 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 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 be invited back to work on this project for my friends in the Southern Jurisdiction. I also painted the previous portrait addition back in 2019. I look forward to visiting in-person again and seeing the paintings on display there in the (hopefully) not-too-distant future.
