So one of the most interesting things I noticed in my recent visit to Mission San Xavier was this painted door on the right of the main chapel. A docent said that it was painted to help achieve balance in the interior as just opposite this faux door is a real door. A very interesting concept for the 1700's, don't you think?
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
