My brother and his wife returned recently from serving a mission for the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Monterrey, Mexico temple. My brother wanted to give his wife a special birthday present and commissioned a plaque which included the temple, but also many of the natural wonders of the Monterrey area that they came to love so much, including Saddleback Mountain in the background. It was such a joy imagining the two of them experiencing these beauties as I was researching and painting them. I hope it will be a permanent reminder of their time there.
