Art Notes

"Pause in your travels ye wayfarer, and celebrate the Lord in the beauty of His creation."

That is the invitation Carmel's Church of the Wayfarer has offered countless visitors since its construction in 1904.

I set up my easel to paint the grand old chapel in the glorious light of an autumn morning. The radiance seemed to kiss the shadows away from the whitewashed walls. Monterey pine trees form a festive garland surrounding the church's craftsman style cupola and steeple. I hope that you, too, will some day enjoy the tranquility of the Church of the Wayfarer.
