Earleton, Florida- Connecting to the Past through Painting

My oil painting Earleton Twilight is included in the 
10th Annual Thomas Center Juried Art Exhibit 
in Gainesville, FL. 
To view the painting and my comments click here March 18th post

Now as Paul Harvey would say, here's the rest of the story -
The painting was created during the Open Air Arts 
event held this March in Melrose, FL. 
After reading this Florida heritage marker,
I was inspired to create the painting.
Do you know where this site is? If so let me know. 

Of course the church is long gone but you might 
find this article about carpenter gothic design of interest. 
When you see the painting hope you feel the spirit of 
this quiet spot.
