Bethania 8

“Gates to God’s Acre”
7 x 10" watercolor

There stands a magnificent entryway to God’s Acre, the Moravian graveyard in Bethania. And I found solemn contemplation in painting it. As I’ve mentioned, some of the red cedars in this graveyard date back to the founding of the community in 1759. How fortunate the dead have kept watch over these historic trees and protected them from being leveled to the ground in the name of new development. I invite you to see a wider view of the Gates at
Hot Off the Easel.
