New Sweden Church

New Sweden Church, 8 x 6 in.

New Sweden Evangelical Lutheran Church (completed in 1923) sits just Northeast of Manor, Texas, which is just Northeast of Austin. I was fortunate enough to be able to join my Plein Air Austin painting friends today to paint there. This copper steeple rises 104 feet, and can be seen for quite a long distance. I was impressed by how beautiful the countryside is out there--I'll be back there for sure!

The first person we met in New York was from Austin, and he told us all about how wonderful the city is. This is a gorgeous painting.
