"I made three starts on this subject; in the first painting I used the actual colors of the church. Too somber, out it went. In my second effort the priest was as stiff as the rake. It too was tossed out. With this third attempt, I’m happy.
It depicts the "New" church at Russian Mission on the Yukon River. Dilapidated as the new church may be, the "old church" teeters precariously in the tall grass only a hundred yards or so away and must surely be held up solely by miraculous intervention." - Rie Munoz
