Cahill United Methodist Church

A few years ago, I was asked to create a watercolor of a run-down church to be published on the cover of a fiction novel.  The painting, “Last Night in Waterford” can be seen on my website  More recently, I returned to the church I used as a subject, the Cahill United Methodist Church, south of Burleson, just east of I-35W, and created a small watercolor which now I have made into a greeting card with text.  The time is nearly midnight.  I’m weary of cards for one day!  I’m going to post this and call it a day.  Hope you enjoy this one.

    Very nice work! The view of the entrance makes
    it inviting. I can feel myself walking in.
    Peace & take care,

    Thank you, Tom. I’m glad you feel some kind of “pull.” That means a great deal to me, if ever I can make anything that draws in a viewer. Thank you for posting.

    I have live a 1/4 of a mile from this church all my life. I love this church and brings back alot of memories, I still see it everyday and I am glad others from not around here, can share in its blessed history. I apreciate someone took an interest.

    Thank you. I’m glad you found the painting. You may not care as much for the first one I did (on my website and now the cover of a novel). In that one, the church had to look vandalized and in disrepair (to fit the story of the book). I kind of hated to do that to the watercolor, because this particular church is definitely maintained with a lot of care.

    Just wanted you to know that I have enjoyed looking at your art and reading your blog. I am a fellow artist (watercolor and oil) and love plein air painting. I can relate to your watercolors.
