Caitlyn is from Washington, D.C. She was visiting family and looking at paintings in
Hartford's Wadsworth Atheneum. With her shock of bright red hair and gray short-sleeved shirt,
I had to pose her near William Merritt Chase's 1875 painting, The Apprentice.
And, so long as we are looking at artwork, here are people looking at icons in the
Church of Elijah the Prophet, a Russian Orthodox church built in 1647 - 1650
in Yaroslavl by two wealthy fur-trading brothers.
Yaroslavl is overflowing with churches. Perhaps the most interesting exterior is that of
John the Baptist Church, built in 1671 - 1687, a 15-onion dome church that is
featured on the back of a 1,000 ruble banknote.
