The Little Church at LaVillita

The holidays are over and I can't believe that the calendar on the wall reads February. I have enjoyed painting several watercolors in the past few weeks. LaVillita is a charming area rich in history and is a National Register Historic District. It is now a setting alive with shops and galleries that continue the arts and crafts tradition.
The cornerstone was laid for the church in 1879. Several denominations have held services here. It is now an active non-denominational church and a favorite site for weddings.
