Up the street less than a block from my studio is "The Little White Church", one of the oldest buildings in Union, Oregon, built in 1874. I'm not sure if it ever housed other denominations, but it served the Catholic community for many years until a larger modern building was built. The nave portion of the church was built in a hexagonal half-circle.

Today the building belongs to the Union County Museum and is lovingly maintained as a vital part of the town's history.

It is great that that little church building is maintained. Did you do the painting plein air? The painting makes one feel as if they are right there!

Nice to hear from you, Mary--thanks a lot.

It's done from a photo, Egretta. I appreciate the compliment.
