This watercolor of the Ephrata Cloister as winter scene was painted in 2005. The artist's previous watercolor of the Ephrata Cloister as a summer scene was painted in 1983. The Ephrata Cloister is located in Ephrata, Pennsylvania. The sect was founded in 1732 by Conrad Beissel, a German pietist mystic. The community's three orders, a brotherhood, a sisterhood, both of which practiced celebacy and a married order of househoulders, sought to serve God in medieval tradition. Its residents lived in austere hardship and discipline - even the narrow and short doorways and wooden pillows were made to teach humility. The artist remembers tramping through heavy snow to shoot the photographs for this painting. The cold feeling and the detail in this painting is superb! This print is available as a limited edition, open edition and as a collectible.
