Art Paine, Fine Artist

The Art of Boats, the Boats of Art

Tiniest Anglican

Tiniest Anglican

In the village of “the Ferry”, on Little Exuma Island, is what is billed as the World’s smallest Church. Art Paine has reason to doubt that, because long ago with a girlfriend he knelt and prayed it would all work out in a tiny roadside chapel in the town of Startup, Washington State. But certainly this is the World’s smallest Anglican church. Year after year the church has baked in the sun, and one year the bouganvillea and Frangipani and other tropical flowers all bloomed at once in profusion around the old rugged cross and the church bell. It was a sight to see. This is a poor reproduction of the painting, but a top Maine art critic once remarked about the clouds.
It did, by the way, all work out. Just not exactly the way they prayed it would.
