Village Boulevard, 12 x 16, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2014
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.

Sea Passage, 9 x 12, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2014
One thing that fascinates me about marshes is their connection to the sea. The tide pushes ocean water into the marshland, and then the rivers push it back out to the sea. Consequently, the marshland and the beaches are always interacting and in a state of flux. This view from the marsh's edge includes the ocean in the distance as the tide is coming in.
