"Chapel at Tettelham", Oil on Linen, 9x12, plein air, $75
The small Bavarian village of Tettelham is composed of maybe 8 or ten farm houses clustered around this old chapel. The week we were there, the last service of the summer was held on a Tuesday evening. From now until spring of next year, the villagers will go to the larger church in Otting, Germany about two miles away. In this part of Germany there are small chapels like this dotting the hillsides everywhere you look. Each is the center point of five to twenty or so farm houses and farm and grazing land. All the houses have lush displays of flowers in window boxes and their yards.
