Village Boulevard

This quaint divided boulevard is in the town of St. Mary's, Georgia. It's a peaceful place to visit and I loved how the morning sun lit up the front of this historical Catholic Church, "Our Lady Star of the Sea". Isn't that a great name? The chapel was built in 1840, originally as a bank. When the bank failed, the building was purchased, a bell tower was added, and parishioners met there until a formal church was built in 1957. The chapel is only used now for special services. It's quite a charming place.

Really gives a sense of place... I love thinking of you 'close by' on the East Coast. Yesterday I pulled up your images for my class and told them all about you. We used your exercise of doing 3 kinds of value studies, so they could have a variety to select from when they're painting on their own. I also encouraged everyone to take a class or workshop with you. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
