Mt Carmel Chapel

 For some reason I am drawn to old churches.Is it the simple timeless architecture or the remnants of my  Catholic faith finding expression in the elements of sun and shadow?    This 100 year old stone church is behind the supemarket on a busy highway near my house. The low winter sun turned the cedar tree a color that when mixed on the palette looked almost pure orange. I loved the shadow cast on the church.  12x12in oil on panel
