EXQUISITE CHAPEL IN GUALALA


Sitting in a meadow back off the main road is a romantic little chapel that looks like it jumped out of a fairy tale book! It looks enchanted and definitely is enchanting. Every detail from the interesting shape of the building down to the small collection of shells embeded in the swirl of the ceiling, is beautifully thought out and executed with the finest craftsmanship. A sparkling jewel in the landscape. I didn't have time to paint it (maybe next trip) but I went overboard photographing. I hope you enjoy this slide show. Next time you are in the area, make sure you stop and enjoy this chapel. The door is always open.

Hi Myrna, These two slide shows from your workshop are great! The chapel looks like quite the piece of art. I am most impressed by the wonderful paintings your students achieved; very expressive!

This chapel was certainly inspired by Gaudi and the Art Nouveau mvt. Thanks for sharing these wonderful pics, Myrna!

This chapel reminds me of a geode -- rather rough-hewn on the outside with a gem-like interior. Fabulous!! Thanks for sharing this.
