Default Photoshop request for my DAD.

As some of you know, my Mother recently passed away in California (2 weeks ago). My Father is trying to find/create clipart for her headstone. On the headstone will be a Wren (figure that one out) similar or identical to the clipart on my website www.williamwren.com and also a clipart image about 5-6" high of the Mormon Temple in Oakland CA (one of my Mother'* favorite places).

I need some help desperately. I need an image of that building turned into simple clipart (2 colors, black and white). It will be engraved into light gray granite, with the engraved areas filled in with black.

Can one of you PS gurus take this on?

Or any other picture that you may think is suitable. Remember, dark engraving on a light background.

My Father would be eternally grateful for any help from you guys. He was very excited when he heard from me that I've got a few friends with magic wands.

Correct. This will be engraved into stone. Black on white, or white on black.

Prefer black lines on white.

Thank you, Paul and Ryan. That means alot to me.

BTW, this is why I moved one weekend earlier than planned, and spent a week in CA a couple weeks ago.

Pete, those are really looking good. Is it difficult to turn the Temple image into simple line-art? With straighter lines? Don't kill yourself over this.

Andrew, I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
